Maralyn paints primarily in oils and pastels and chooses to paint the golden, rolling hills of California, mostly because of her love of the hills she spent her early life in and also for the rhythm of the lights and shadows as they sweep across the horizon.
She painted abstracts for many years before returning to realism in 1997. Her paintings can be found in numerous private collections dating back to the 1960s, and have been in many juried and solo shows where she has won many awards.
Before retiring in 1989 Maralyn owned and operated 3 Art Supply / Picture Framing stores in Mountain View, Sunnyvale and
Maralyn devotes full time to her passion for painting and welcomes visitors to her Studio during Open Studios in May and year round by appointment.
