About

Hi There! I’m Marisa!

It’s so awesome that you are here.

Welcome to my Etsy Shop, my place to share with you who I am.

I am an abstract painter interested in color, pattern and texture. I see the world as a place full of color, pattern and texture and seek to showcase the beauty of this world to others. In my process:

“The work proceeds from the accumulated understanding and experience of form and color, balance and scale, which are the artist’s intuition.” –Fredric Hammersley

Exploratory experimentation in my work ultimately leads to an intense desire for reconciliation. Initial actions and chance reactions result in unexpected manipulations that engage my intuition. Tension is established through initiating improvisational actions such as an injection of a complimentary color into a contrasting color wash. Through the layering and structuring processes, compositional control is regained by carefully directing the interaction of opaque or transparent shapes, washes, structural elements. I make movements where they are directed and questioned by formal instinct. Ultimately, this delicate dance is resolved in melodious and sometimes dissident worlds of mystery.


Now that you know a little more about me, and why I make art, take a look and I hope you enjoy!
