Passion, creativity, clay, paint, pen, ink, pencils, paper metals and glass come together as a winning plan for Marilyn’s art. Her inspiration is from the beauty of God’s creation. She has always been intrigued with the process of recreating in all forms of art.
In her early years of art exploration she was fascinated with painting pictures of friends and family homesteads. Then she grew brave enough to paint her mother and father-in-law’s portrait. Her grandchildren are her latest challenges of portrait painting, with pieces hanging in each parents’ homes.
She has encouraged art in her family and has enjoyed spending time with family members working with them on art projects.
As a preschool teacher, she enjoyed finding new ways to teach open-ended art, which gave the children a sense of accomplishment and art to be proud of. She would put on an art show for the parents and children.
Art fills every aspect of her life, including drawing and writing books for her kindergarten Sunday School Bible Class.
Her inspiration with all media comes with thankfulness for the people who have come into her life to teach, inspire and encourage along the way.
