Originally from Mobile, Marilyn was captivated with the beauty and heritage of East Tennessee while visiting PlumNelly, an outdoor art show. After graduating from Auburn with a BFA, she moved to the area and still works as a graphic designer.

In 2013, she returned to the fine arts when studio space, shared with other artists, became available nearby. She spends as much time as possible drawing and painting at Studio 212 in Maryville, Tennessee where she also teaches beginning and intermediate drawing. Her charcoal and pastel work reflects a graphic arts background, with strong compositions and a contemporary style.

“Not knowing farm life, I have always been intriqued with these monumental structures and the life around them. As I’m driving, I find myself noting that the cows on Springbrook are close to the road mid-afternoon or the sun lights up the farm buildings on River Road at sunset. These scences will inevitably disappear. I want to remember them before they’re gone.”
