Marilyn, the founder of Drunk Girl Art creates paintings about booze, wine, whiskey, brandy, coffee, and abstract cat paintings. From beer to martinis she loves the wavy lines of her art recreating her trips to Venice, Italy, and the reflections in the water.
After 25 years as an award-winning portrait photographer in Miami, Florida, she turned to paint — first portraits and then other subjects. She developed a passion for mixed media which incorporates a long process of multiple photo references which she synthesizes into one image and then digitally paints. That image is printed on high-quality canvas and then enhanced with acrylic paints, media, dyes, pigments, and a variety of other materials. This method creates many layers of texture for each painting. There is only one original artwork, and it sells for thousands to collectors.
The original paintings are then converted to a final digital file that can be printed on giclee canvas, fine art paper, and dye-infused metals, along with other substrates for collectors — plus gift items for everyone. Color and energy run through every painting. She brings inanimate objects to life with her shapes, colors, and textures.
She moved to Asheville, North Carolina in 2007 and has never looked back as she started her new art business. Marilyn’s art hangs in many galleries and restaurants in across the U.S., and she is available for commissions for your home, bar, or restaurant. Drunk Girl Art is beautiful wall art and home decor with more than a little fun in it!
Marilyn’s books, workshops, and speaking engagements have educated thousands of artists and photographers. In addition to her artwork, Marilyn is a passionate cat rescuer and a servant to too many of them. Nevertheless, she is quick to respond to emails and messages. Get in touch today!
