Marilyn has been painting and selling works since she was 19 in 1971. Earlier works consisted mainly of wildlife paintings. Through the years her portfolio widened to include abstract, portrait, still life and landscape paintings.
In 2002, after 30 years of drawing and painting through the observation and the delivery of a more illustrative art, Marilyn Comparetto began to experiment.
Following an initial intensive time of experimentation, Marilyn finally found she could be totally expressive by breaking all the rules and ignoring all of the criticism around her. Marilyn continues to develop the theoretical approach of portraying emotions and connections intertwined within the compositions of her artwork. Creating paintings by pulling deep thoughts and emotions from her own subconscious or/and from influences in the world around her she spews them onto the canvas. As part of this process Marilyn often not only gives a visual image but also creates, and attaches, some poems or prose so that the viewer can understand the emotions that were being delivered in front of them. Marilyn named this free style form of art ‘Mixism-the ultimate form of expressionism and has demonstrated her Mixism style to over 20 art societies around the UK.
Marilyn continues to enjoy painting in many different styles - for further information please visit: www.marilyncomparetto.com
