Marilyn Simandle, American Artist
the artist's site
Marilyn Simandle had always known that she would become an artist. Learning form her mother, a musician and painter in her own right, Simandle started painting watercolors at age six. Raised in the San Francisco Bay area, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from San Jose State University. Simandle went on to share her developed knowledge and incredible talent by teaching art and conducting workshops throughout California and at the Scottsdale Artists' School for the past 15 years. Originally a watercolorist, Marilyn has committed herself in a new direction in recent years, oil painting. Her paintings assimilate the delicate touch and planning needed in watercolor with the boldness and finish that only oil painting can achieve.
