Marilyn from Bermagui is a self-taught artist who has lived by the sea for over 20 years. She started painting textural art inspired by the colours and textures of the sea, sand and amazing sea life to decorate her newly built home in 2006 at Lake Conjola where she was living at the time. This inspired Marilyn to open and run her own gallery in Milton for the past 10 years. This is her first showing at Narooma since moving to Bermagui in June. She had an exhibition at Gallery 7 at Bermagui recently and was well received. Marilyn loves the cool green and blues of the ocean and lakes here plus the amazing wildlife. Pelicans are her favourite and this has inspired her current work Coastal Colours. Marilyn Raynsford exhibition at Soart Gallery Narooma, 1- 6 December 2016 and again 12 – 17 January 2017.
