"I am a citizen of the world. There are many languages, but the language I speak is universal.
It is a language of love, peace and harmony.
My language is Art.
Marilyn has pursued painting her entire adult life with a B.A. from U.C.L.A. and a Masters in Painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. In 2009 she was awarded "Member in Excellence" with the South Carolina Watermedia Society. In 2110 she became a signature member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters. In the same year she received an Honorable Mention from Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston.
She has had numerous solo exhibits, beginning with her first in 1980, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where her husband was a diplomat for the United States. She is primarily an abstract painter, but agrees with Kandinsky's philosophy that there are no "musts" in art. She freely moves from Abstraction to Realism, always searching for the best way to express an idea. Her themes are color and light, taking inspiration from nature, the spiritual, and exploration of media.
Marilyn is an active member of the Apple Pie Painters, Art Beyond Tradition, Art League of Hilton Head, Society of Bluffton Artists, South Carolina Watermedia Society and International Society of Acrylic Painters.
