Damia is a photographer whose work is mostly of plants and then Marilyn paints from them in oils.
Marilyn received her BA in Fine Arts from the State University College at Buffalo. She began studying art at Penn State University and finished her degree at SUNYCAB. She was most interested in Art History and painting with oils. She gave up painting soon after college to pursue a career in teaching ballet. Three years ago she decided to take up painting but mainly as a hobby. Her hobby has become a passion which now has her painting daily. She paints with oils but continues teaching ballet which makes her look forward to each tomorrow. Many of her paintings are in private homes in Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Texas, Florida, California, New Mexico and the Bahamas. www.marilyncavallari.com
