Artist Bio

I am a Visual Artist, Illustrator and Art Educator. I received my B.F.A. in photography from the University of Alabama and my M.F.A. in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2006, I exhibited my work at the Mobile Museum of Art and assisted in curating Generation X: Post Boomers of the South. In 2016 I was awarded Chalk Champ at the LoDA Squares Sidewalk Art Competition and in 2017 I won an Award of Excellence for my Sea Turtle Interior painting, included in the 5 Rivers Water|Ways show . I have taught secondary, collegiate and adult art classes and participated in numerous group and solo art exhibitions, including my solo show titled Inner Transcendence, at the Mobile Arts Council in 2017. I am represented by Marnee’s Studio, where I also teach watercolor and drawing classes. You can view my art work available for purchase and class schedule by visiting www.marneestudio.com  I am a member of the Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society of Mobile and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Currently I am in the process of seeking publication for Night Owl, a children’s story that I illustrated in collaboration with writer Meggan Haller. I live and work in Mobile, AL and when I am not painting, you can find me exploring new places with my husband and two very energetic children.
