Medium: Pastel
Subjects: Landscape; Figurative; Still Life.
Style: Representational. Marlene says:
I am a passionate realist, working with a palette of soft pastels, sanded paper, and a kneaded eraser. My early years of working in the abstract helped me refine my handling of the medium and sharpen my understanding of shape and form as it manifests in the natural world. I feel obligated as an artist to reflect the world I live in, to look keenly at my environment, and to present it to the viewer in an engaging way.
