Marianne Barnard (M)

Marianne is a contemporary artist creating in a broad spectrum of mediums. Her art comes from a deep place within her psyche, expressing both personal and social issues.

"Before I start creating, I ignite myself from within and gather energy to reach a level of intensity from which the shapes and colors will be born. I find a piece of music, which moves me and expresses some of the thoughts and feeling I'm wrestling with, which I use as a mantra. I'll listen to a song on repeat throughout the birthing process, letting the energies of the music flow through me so that I become a conduit.
My art is a dance of creation." - (M)

Marianne grew up in Malibu, riding the waves and horseback riding which nurtured her close connection to and love of the ocean and nature. She attended Idyllwild Arts Academy where she was taught by artist Françoise Gilot, the muse and mistress of Picasso. Marianne Barnard (M) received her Bachelor of Arts, Fine and Studio Arts, from Pepperdine University.
