Artistic Statement
I started painting to capture the beauty of nature and now, I find that painting has captured me.

Marilyn is a newcomer to Bracebridge, but not a newcomer to painting. She has been painting for more than 30 years and feels privileged to be part of the Muskoka art community.  

Her inspiration to paint comes from her love of the countryside that she has enjoyed since childhood. Her paintings are dynamic, expressive and interpretative. Painting has become an important part of her life and she loves it.  

Primarily a landscape artist in watercolour and acrylic, Marilyn also focuses on abstract and  non objective art. This exhilarating art form allows her to paint from within, using her love of colour, creativity and knowledge of composition.  

Marilynís paintings have been accepted in many juried art shows such as The Canadian McMichael Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario; North York Arts Council; Mississauga Visual Arts Show; and Central Ontario Art Show. She has received several Honourable Mentions at the Aurora Art Show.  

Her work is represented at Burlington Art Centre, Burlington, Ontario.  

Marilynís paintings are in private and corporate collections in North America, Central America, Europe, Africa and Australia.
