Thanks Laurena, my Grandchildren are my biggest fans, it's "What are Witch and Cat up to this week, Granny!" They are collecting my prints of the originals that I enhance with the gold and iridescent and look just as good as the originals, you have a job to tell the difference! They also fit in a collectors album to view them.

Artist Statement

MarilynIf you are reading this then thank you very much for your interest!
I have painted all my life from being a small child with paper and paint as my main toys. I took a diploma in art and design in the 70's then went on to do graphic design and worked in advertising...those were the days before computer when we did lettering by hand or letraset.. how laborious!
My favourite art medium is Black Indian Ink and Artist watercolour paint.
I always enhance my paintings with iridescent and gold ink to make them glimmer in the light. I love the magical effect it gives.
If you wonder why I have so many Witch and Cat paintings it is because I started them off as collectors cards in 2008 and they have caught on and are still in demand.. I am...
I found the trees and chrome (especially the chrome) difficult. Any tips on these two areas would be much appreciated?
Hi Andrew, Suggest we put CC after any comment we make on a picture in the CC group, so that the artist knows where we are coming from ! Thanks Hilary, ... view answer
