Marilyn Fenn creates non-objective paintings with a focus on color, form, and composition.  Working in oil, acrylic, watercolor, encaustic, or mixed media, she explores how paint inhabits and defines a surface.  The common thread throughout all of Marilyn’s work is her unerring sense of color.

Marilyn’s work is self-informing: she begins with a basic idea, a color, and a brushstroke or two, and then each stroke leads to the next.  The process is organic and evolutionary, allowing the work to take on a life of its own.  She is as much watching it happen as she is making it happen.

Marilyn has exhibited her work in juried and invitational local and national exhibitions and is collected in private collections across the United States and abroad.
