Local artist Marilyn Raynsford has her exhibition at SoArt Gallery, Narooma from Thursday, December 1 until December 6 and again January 12-17.
Marilyn from Bermagui is a self-taught artist who has lived by the sea for over 20 years and started painting textural art inspired by the colours and textures of the sea, sand and amazing sea life to decorate her newly built home in 2006 at Lake Conjola where she was living at the time.
This inspired her to open her own gallery in Milton for the past 10 years. This is her first showing at Narooma since moving to Bermagui in June this year she did an exhibition at Gallery 7 at Bermagui recently and was well received.
Marilyn said she was loving the cool green and blues of the ocean and lakes here plus the amazing wildlife pelicans were her favourite, and this has inspired her current work “Coastal Colours”.
