JAXPORT & The Arts - Exhibiting Artists
Artist Marilyn Antram
An Ohio-born artist and design major who spent her early years in the vibrant creative arena of American Greetings in Cleveland, Marilyn has become an accomplished impressionist in both acrylics and oils after working for many years at her first career of graphic design. She felt the call to leave the computer and pursue fine. Having done extensive illustration all during her career, drawing was second nature to her. It has been a rewarding decision, both professionally and personally in a relatively short time.
Marilyn has developed a fondness for the coastal US, especially Florida. She has painted a succession of colorful scenes of harbors from Massachusetts to North Florida, featuring working fishing boats. Other subject interests are North Florida’s nostalgic towns and historic districts like Fernandina Beach and St. Augustine, capturing the quaint culture and tradition of these appealing destinations.
Of course, the beauty of nature is a prime subject. Whether it’s flowers growing in a garden or in a vase or an amazing landscape, she transfers the beauty of the scene to the viewer. She calls herself a “new impressionist,” reflecting a boldness in stroke and color that illuminates her wide range of subjects.
