After 25 years as a professional portrait photographer with a successful 2600 sq foot studio, Marilyn changed careers and directed her creative juices toward fine art digital painting and then took it further by painting on the canvas creating mixed media. Her original and spontaneous art immediately became a hit with collectors and commissioned pieces of art.

Marilyn’s art has been published, and articles about her work have been featured in magazines, books, posters, greeting cards, and gift items. Her fine art prints are exhibited in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and Europe. She has been exhibited in airports, galleries and other juried shows.
