Marilyn Jacobson paints beautiful watercolor portraits of people and pets. She likes capturing the personality of each person. Below, she shares why she enjoys doing her work.
What do you love about your job?
I love creating art of all kinds, but It is especially fun to create humorous people and animals from my imagination.
Who inspired you to start your own business?
Friends, family, and fellow artists encouraged me. I had drawing skills, and I learned watercolor techniques through workshops, lessons, and painting. In my early years, I painted realistically, as I considered this "serious" art. Over the past decade, my art has evolved into a more playful style, using my imagination and sense of humor. Many of my paintings encourage the viewer to provide their own interpretation. My paintings tend to be nostalgic. My business is a way to share my art with others.
