About Marlene D Cohen

Color is my passion; I enjoy bringing more of the essence of the subject to the canvas than a literal interpretation, capturing the spirit or character of what I am painting.

Though I’ve been making art for over four decades, it wasn’t until 2013 that I brought out the easel, paints and pastels and really began creating paintings. It has been a journey that started with watercolors, traversed through ink and pencil, and now incorporates oil and pastel to help bring my vision into creation.

My art has been described as vivid, alive and sometimes whimsical. I choose to enhance what I see, adding more light and color, using layers of paint or pastel to provide a rich texture for the eye to drink in.

With this in mind, I invite you to scroll through the virtual gallery of my work. Or, make plans to join me at an upcoming show (events).
