Marilyn is an artist and designer who truly believes creativity feeds the soul.
Currently she is a practicing artist and professional textile designer who works within a wide range of media. Marilyn has had over 20 years experience as stylist and colorist in the home textile industry.
The common threads of her work are vivid colors, texture, pattern and volume.
She loves the interaction of working with her materials finding great satisfaction in making things by hand, living a creative life.
Four years ago she started her quilting journey actually not even knowing how to sew. Now she is totally committed, smitten with the process.
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA major in textile design, she also studied Figure Drawing at New York's Art Student’s League.
She first studied watercolor with Jack Yelle at the National Art League with a group of inspiring enthusiastic artists. She frequently participates in workshops to learn new techniques and engage with other artists.
