Marianne Larsen Reninger weaves stories into "Word Portraits". Using contemporary and historic papers, computer graphics, and acrylic paints and inks, Marianne creates richly detailed mixed media paintings. These intricate images are interwoven with words, phrases and quotes, which are as important as the visual elements. The result is intricate, textural paintings that directly reflect the world, and that are a record of life's political and social merry-go-round.
Marianne is an "Editorial Artist". Her paintings are meant to be read, like a favorite book, as well as, absorbed, like a visual feast.
