Art has always been a way for one to express ones self, and show what we see around us, as well as within us.
I feel through art we can help others open their eyes and see things they might have not noticed. Possibly enhancing emotion, vision, and or even making a difference in the world and those who share it with us. ~ Marlene Barrett ~
All creatures great and small I love to paint them all!
I always had a loving bond with Animals and Art, even as a child. I've found that animals and nature give an unconditional love and beauty, and thus has my undying respect, love, and need to try and convey this special spirit through my art to all those willing to see it.
My education in art was the art classes I was able to take in grade and high school.
I start with the eyes of each animal, as this is were the true eminence of each animal comes through and gives me my inspiration.
I specialized in painting commission pet portraits, wildlife, and black and white art. Doing commissions of precious pets has given me the ability to continue my art while making others happy. Recent completing of illustrations for an upcoming fictional novel.The authur is Charlie Boring, and his titled "The Last Neanderthal Clan," will be available for sale sometime in or after July.
My hope is somehow I can make a difference to benefit and bring out the awareness of the needs of our wildlife and domestic pets!
