77 Marilyn Kearney, The New, cold wax and oil, 24″x28″

Born in Robeson County, NC, Marilyn Kearney has expressed her creativity in various forms all her life. Her artistic journey has taken her all over the country and through various artistic media, culminating in her greatest artistic passion, painting. She began painting 35 years ago, taking art classes at her local library before moving on to private lessons in faux painting in Greensboro, NC. She quickly moved from student to teacher, hosting her own art classes at a local community college and the same library where she began painting. Word of her talent spread, and she was commissioned to create faux finishes on the walls at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC. Through her work there, she was commissioned to design and paint artwork on antique nursery furniture for Wicker Garden in New York. In recent years as her artistry has evolved toward fine art, Mrs. Kearney has designed murals and applied faux finishes in homes along the East Coast. She currently resides in North Myrtle Beach, SC with her husband and poodle mix where she has most recently painted canvases featuring sea life that have been shown in specialty shops and restaurants.
