She paints mainly in oils, continual commissions, telling emotion full stories through each piece she creates. While she calls her style realistic impressionism, she has studied every style including the old master's techniques.

Testimonials

I work with some of the greatest people when I create custom portraits and commissions. Take a look at what some of them are saying...

“Marlene is, obviously, a very talented artist and painter as well as one of the nicest, most thoughtful and kind people you will every be lucky to meet and to work with for something as personal and powerful as one of her works of art. What truly sets Marlene apart from others is another gift she has. The ability to truly SEE a person, to interpret what she sees and then convey that onto Canvas to make what is truly a one of a kind treasure you will keep and cherish forever and then some. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you. I hope I am able to call you friend for a very long time. :)

You ROCK! ;)”

"It is hard to put into words how wonderful an experience has been to work with Marlene - She is a very gifted and talented artist - and has become a good friend! She has painted two very special portraits of myself and Best friend - this #1 of #2 - She carefully caught the essence of our friendship, which was very emotional for me as my friend has become challenged with living with ALS - So, I cannot thank Marlene enough for her kindness and understanding that coincides with her talent - Thank you Marlene!! I highly recommend Loving Portraits Shop..."

“This portrait of my beautiful daughter Sandy arrived today, Marlene has captured the very essence and spirit of my beloved daughter perfectly. With that look I had seen so many times on her face in life. Marlene's talent as a gifted artist aside, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. So goodhearted and kind. There are not enough words to fully express my deep appreciation. I will treasure the experience of working with Marlene, almost as much as I will treasure this amazing painting of my beautiful lost girl. Thank you so much Marlene! You are an angel.”

"Where can I start?

How about THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! When my husband received this, he openly cried! When he turned it around, I literally gasped and cried at how you captured us at one of the happiest moments of our lives! IT IS STUNNING!!!"

I have wanted to have my grand babies painted for so long and finally found the perfect picture. I cannot believe how fast and incredibly talented Marlene produced it - I feel so honored to have gotten to watch the process!!! Amazing!!! The painting came out so beautifully that it made me cry. We miss them so much as they live a few hours away and this is the way to keep them close every single day.
Thank you Marlene so much, my heart is full of glorious emotion. Peace and love, Cin
