Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge presents A collection of new works by Marianne

Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge presents A collection of new works by Marianne Elson. Bright, bold oil paintings reflecting urbanism. Opening reception 5-8pm at our new location in Metro Mall (530 E Benson Blvd.)

Artist’s Statement

I am inspired by everyday life. I love to paint and lose myself in the process. Sometimes I get a feeling or idea for a whole story in a painting and other times I just see something with great color and personality that I’d like to capture. Inspiration comes everyday and if I... don’t have the time to paint, I have imagined at least 5 paintings that day in my mind. I’m always learning, watching and listening for inspiration and a story to tell in paint.

Artist Biography

Marianne was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her family moved to Alaska during the 1970’s and she spent her childhood in Anchorage, Alaska. Coming and going during her 20’s, she moved back permanently to start a family and has been a resident ever since. She has displayed her colorful oil paintings in many group shows and several solo shows since 2003. She was awarded the Juror’s choice award in the “XXXI All Alaska Juried Art Show” and has recently displayed her work in “The Best and Brightest Juried Fine Art Show” in Scottsdale, Arizona, a show hosted by the Scottsdale Artist School.
