What isn’t there to love about immersing oneself in paint? To record memories, to explore, experiment, be challenged & have fun; To experience the play of paint on canvas & paper, to give in to the mystery of the moment, to capture a point in time, & weave a fantasy of colour, texture & light is an unsurpassed pleasure. Keats’ line: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever” pretty well sums it up.
🎨 A doodler all her life, Marilyn took up oils and watercolours in the early 70s, and in 1998 she started to work in experimental collage and acrylics. Along the way she obtained a certificate in fine arts with distinction from St Lawrence College. Painting trips to England, France, Italy, Greece and Mexico have enriched her painting vocabulary. In 1999 she had a solo show at her alma mater in the University of Toronto. In 2008 she built her art website. Twice president of the South Grenville Guild of Fine Art, she exhibits with the Guild, the SLC Fine Arts Alumni, Brockville Chapter & the BGH Corridor Gallery artists group.
