About Me

There was a time, not so long ago, when I was a frustrated creative who had denied her true calling for way too long. Art was not practical. Art was no way to make a living. Art took up way too much time and energy for too little payoff.

What I didn’t acknowledge: Making art made me happy.


Who am I?

This life is a journey. Every person has an individual path. My path took the long and winding road through the corporate box back to the creative life I am still trying to carve for myself…while I work my day job to pay my mortgage and put my kid through school. My blog is where I document my creative experiments, and the occasional life event that shapes my work. Interested?  I post every other Monday.


What is my art about?

I live in a big, busy city. What I try to do with my paintings is create a place of meditative calm amidst the chaos. How does living in today’s world affect how we connect to ourselves, our culture, society, each other? What is the connection between certain shapes and colours, and our emotional, instinctive gut reaction? It’s this mystery that defines my direction.


Here's what my collector's say about my work: 

After my partner and I moved in together, we quickly realized that filling our walls with art that we love would really make the space our own. Our first joint home purchase were pieces from Marianne's collection - ones that we both loved instantly, upon viewing them at her art show. We intend to continue filling our space with her beautiful work.

Marianne's use of the paint brush is stunning. I have a print of Ella in her jazz series and I couldn't be happier! Marianne is a truly gifted artist!

I need to know more... Where can I find some other info?

I've been interviewed for a few art websites. The most recent one is in Guild Magazine (2018), a global arts and culture mag out of NYC. There is an older one on Elusive Muse (2014), where I talk about my musician series, and a video interview with Arizona Lowe from "Talking Art" on YouTube (2015).
