 Do you need more technical skill to convey what you want to express but getting the right kind of help has been hard to find?


Have you been questioning what your path is as an artist and would love some expert, personally supportive guidance?

I love guiding artists to the source of true self expression and then revealing how their unique voice is given form through their particular use of color and composition.

Owning your personal authentic voice and possessing the technical skill to make compelling work is key to being the confident artist you want to be.

I so admire the way you impart your talent and knowledge - it is personally empowering and different than other instructors I’ve encountered. You create an opening for the soul to appear.

I have learned more in 3 months about how to make work I want to make than in all the years I took classes! Absolutely worth it!

Marianne has an astounding capacity to intuit, clarify, and articulate what is going on psychically and artistically with students.

 In my painting practice I hear myself saying, “Thank you Marianne,” several times. I am much more aware of what makes a painting work after spending a year learning from you. I think you easily cut 5 years off my learning curve!
