Marilyn currently resides in Welland. She has had no formal training in the arts, but is constantly learning. There is not one media that she favors over another; she is learning the strengths and challenges of working with acrylics, oils and watercolours. She has achieved awards at the Buckhorn Art Festival and has been commissioned to do canvases, which have been given as gifts and also to be hung in the homes of individuals.
Marilyn’s gift of art was also valuable in raising funds for the Dunnville Hospital. She enjoys painting subjects that make her happy and her hope is that the same feeling will be felt when others view her works.
