“Because watercolor actually moves on the paper, it is the most active of all mediums, almost a performance art.” - Nita Engle


Although one of her favorite mediums, Marlene recognizes that, “Watercolor does not come easy.”

For her, it has been a journey of self-discovery, frustration, and - eventually - finding joy in the fluidity of color on paper.

“I have spent many years learning all the nuances of watercolor and am still surprised with unexpected results,” she said. “Every new tube of paint and every new surface provides a fresh experience and unique learning opportunity.”
