Marilyn is an expressionist painter working and residing in the Comox Valley, British Columbia who will be displaying her artwork here at Coastal Black from 9th-29th of August.  (she will even be on-site painting a couple of days too – keep an eye on this blog to find out when!

Below is some more information about this talented artist…plus she has a great website you can visit to see the many different sides to her artist side.

Marilyn’s values, experiences and spirituality reflect in her art; she is a multi-media artist with a strong passion for the natural environment. When not working on location she uses her photography as means of notation to trigger her memories, sensations and imagination so that she may revisit her ephemeral experience of nature with paint. Each of her landscape paintings refers to a particular environment, yet they are unidentifiable.

Her brush strokes are expressive and her colour choices do not represent reality. Instead, she works from a personal vision of how she perceives it. In her work, she paints with bold, vivid colours in a layering technique to create a vibration and luminosity. She explores a sensorial perception of nature through her painting process creating a mood through abstraction that retains a representation of the natural environment.
