About Marilyn Martin

Growing up in the beautiful Hudson River Valley, I was exposed to past Hudson River artist's paintings, which I loved. Years later after marrying in 1948 and raising 5 children I tried my hand at oil pinting, in miniature. I took a few lessons from a native Austrian, Ernestine Bucking, who taught me how to mix oil paints like the original old masters. I sold these miniature paintings at Miniature Shows across the United States.

For a few years after High School I worked at Western Printing in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. and did color work on Walt Disney comics for Whitman Publishing Co.

I took up photography when my children were little to capture memories for them. When I purchased a digital camera I decided to try something new and discovered I could make unique abstracts, just with my camera! Wanting to share these with others, I was happy to have them shown on a website, Pixiport Art Photography. Helen Davenport introduced me to James Schot, who put my huge abstracts on canvas in a show at his Gallery in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Four days later, James Schot couldn't believe I sold 4 of these abstracts, to an out-of-country couple, as by this time I'm 82 years old and starting a career!

I prefer not to reveal my photography method. James Schot and his brother wanted to make sure, before showing them, I wasn't doing my abstracts on Photoshop, so went to Miami Galleries and were convinced no one else was doing anything like my photo abstracts! Most agreed they couldn't be done on PhotoShop!

I was influenced by my Mother, who knit sweater samples for Brunswick Yarn, well into her 80's. Her younger sister, a professional coloratura soprano singer, lived 1 1/2 weeks before her 100th birthday! She said to me, you have enough years ahead of you to follow your dreams to perfection!

Now at age 88, I'm considered a professional and enjoying every minute of it! In fact, I'm branching out into following my dream....seeing my abstracts digitally printed on silk and silk-satin scarves! My fist ones being manufactured in England and then inCalifornia. Striving for the best quality fabric and also workmanship, I soon found out I still have more to learn as Dress Designers are not taking advantage of Digital-printed fabric, experimenting with photos of any designs or any amount of colors, which are endless!

Here, on Fine Art America, I'm delighted to show my unique in-camera abstracts to people all over the world!

Thank-you for this opportunity!
