Marlene is an active local artist that works over 20 different art shows across South Florida annually. Her niche in painting pet portraits was discovered after she painted a portrait of her son with their pet basset hound.

She can craft her works using acrylic or pastel but her favorite medium is oil painting. Her portfolio features many pet portraits but she also commissions pieces that capture an interaction between the owner and pet. This is fairly unique when it comes to most pet portrait artists as the human form adds an additional complexity to the design.Her favorite work was an oil painting she created of a man with his pet horse.
