Born in the Southwest, Marilyn spent her formative years in Cuxhaven, Germany, developing a deep appreciation for art, nature, and traditional cultures. Attending the University of Texas at El Paso, she completed her artistic studies with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting. Marilyn served as artist in residence at the Historic Santa Fe Foundations James L. Johnson House on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Special note from artist; After a near fatal auto accident on July 14, 2013. I remember undoing my seat belt and crawling out of my car which had flipped on its side. My left hand took a pretty good hit and smashed my ring finger, middle and index. I ended up only losing my middle finger. I paint mainly with my right hand...although there are some paintings that I did back in art school with both hands simultaneously. I know why my life was spared...I was told during my near death experience that my purpose is to paint and show the beauty in everything that is here for us to take care of and love. There is way to much pain and suffering and I'm meant to paint all things good in love and light. I'm so very thankful to be given this mission to paint my experience as a mortal on this place we call home. Please enjoy!
