Hi! I'm Marilyn. I'm the woman in the middle picture at the top of the page.
Life is such an adventure! Before retirement, I was a Social Worker in a cancer center. I had the priveledge of working with people in all conditions of life: birth, joy, sorrow, conflict, problem-solving, decision-making, end-of-life, reconciliation, hope.
After retirement, I discovered I have a talent for portrait painting! My goal as a portrait painter is capturing the personality of people and pets in paintings. I think I'm able to do this because of my Social Work experiences. I have painted many commissions of people and pets, usually from a photograph. If needed, two or more photographs can be combined into one painting. My pictures usually tell a story, or there's a story behind them....
And just for fun, I also create other art in addition to portraits. I hope you enjoy my paintings as much as I enjoy creating them. Capture a special memory or occasion with a beautiful painting!
