Marilyn’s style is best described as both geometric expressionism (an exploration of self through shape, color and design) and subjective historicism (an exploration of self through the past). She expresses her inner feelings and emotions through her work by weaving pattern and design into a descriptive mood, exploring how human beings construct their world. Her painting is an exploration of women’s voices through color and design. She has won many awards for watercolor and watermedia in juried shows, and has had her work exhibited numerous times in national, gallery and museum shows. She has also served as a juror in artistic competitions. Risk-taking through experimentation is an inherent part of her artistic approach. She believes understanding ourselves and the world in which we live comes through experimentation, change, and expression of honest emotion.
