About Marilyn Jacobson

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!

    Does the art have to be matted? with backing and plastic sleeve?

  • Marilyn

    No, the art is presented “bare” without matt, backing or other protective cover.  Please go the the website for a submission form and submission guidelines. All artists will be listed.  This is a prestigious event at a great location!  The benefit is for homeless persons at Simpson Housing.
