Marilynn Boston

webpage: None

Marilynn Boston always had a yen to paint, and picked up her first paintbrush when living in Rota, Spain, painting in oils and acrylics with Spanish artist, Julio Ceballos. She didn't seriously pursue painting again until moving to New Orleans and studied with Chick Lively, a popular local watercolor artist, and made her first sell when hanging in a show on the Jackson Square fence. While living in Hawaii Marilynn pursued photography, the images of which have been inspirations for watercolors that are now in private collections. In Los Gatos, California, she continued her interest in watercolors while painting in the Bruni studio. For several years after that, she followed her other passion as a horse owner living on a ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and became a published writer. After returning to Tennessee she took a class at the University of Tennessee, and studied with Betsy Worden both in Knoxville, and Arrowmont. Hanging in the Arts and Antiques Gallery in Knoxville was an avenue for meeting other artists as well as selling her paintings. Margaret Bach, president of MAA, encouraged Marilynn to participate in the Morristown Art Association where she has won awards at MAA Juried Art Shows, as well as at shows elsewhere. She has done commissioned paintings of homesteads in Tennessee, Georgia, Kansas and Minnesota. Marilynn's true joy is placing her art with family and friends.
