Velvet Marshall is a second generation American painter and artist born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Originally trained in a classical, realistic style she later developed an appreciation for the more progressive work of painters both American and European from the modern abstract expressionist movement of the late 1950s and 1960s.

This form of painting, known as "action painting," had similar ties to the Surreal movement, in that it had a direct relation to the artist's emotions, expression, and mood, and showcased their feeling behind the pieces they designed.

This fusion of freedom and expressionism in conjunction with utilizing classical Flemish and old master techniques developed in a modern way is the basis of Velvet Marshall's style philosophy.

Her background in music, film and print add an additional visual, audio and tactile inspiration in her works which are very textured and sensitive to luminosity; employing recurring motion of biorhythms in the paint to predict various aspects of experiences in life with the primary use of mediums such as oil paint, roofing tar, roofing acrylic latex, watercolor, tea and common household mediums used in daily life.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My philosophy of the beauty of true art is in it's ability to create emotional responses and to stimulate the imagination in others…specifically, there are no right or wrong answers…the story is whatever it communicates successfully to its viewers. This interaction i believe is the essence and purpose of what creating art is all about...to bring humanity to life is the whole purpose of being. VM 2014
