I love creating art, because it takes me into that eternal space in which the stresses of time drop away. Ah, to dwell always in that space!
I have worked in pastels, ink, mixed media, textile arts, oils, acrylics and pixels. I have been a photographer for most of my life.
In addition to being an artist, I'm also a designer, writer, and composer. Iâ€™ve published journalism, fiction & poetry. My plays and musicals have been produced by professional, academic and community theater companies. You will find my art and designs in my gallery and shops. My essays and articles are at http://mariandesigns.hubpages.com.
