I am a watermedia artist who is inspired by what I see in nature. Something as simple as a twist of a leaf is enough to excite my imagination. Then the fun begins: translating my thoughts and fleeting impressions into a painting.
Good composition, interesting color and contrast and texture are visual goals. A sense of whimsy and play are also important considerations. I use acrylic paints, inks and collage on either paper or canvas. There is not a better moment than when the "pieces of the puzzle" fall into place and the painting "works."

The Maryn Gallery
Features local artists inspired by nature
As a child I was consumed with the poetry and brilliance of nature. Running wild through the wilderness of Central New York I would sketch my interpretations. My studies with artists like Robert Niedzwiecki, Doreen Quinn and Daniel Buckingham deepened my relationship between humanity and the natural world further. My artistic research lead me into a study of physiology and anatomy. And that study led me toward a passion for health care.
The meaning of Maryn is "of the sea". My first collection of oil paintings were of the sea. Maryn is also the latin form of Mary. Maryn Gallery is named in honor of my mother, Mary and also my grandmother Mary. Both of whom I would not be an artist, entrepreneur or women of the wild with out.
I look forward to your visit and hope that you enjoy the artists that we are privileged to have in our community!
