Arctic themes pervade Marianne’s work, tribute to the years she flew to the villages of Nome and Kotzebue as a stewardess with Alaska Airlines. Visual elements of the far north appear in many of her prints. She draws upon many printmaking techniques but is particularly fascinated with embossing, saying, “I like to see the paper come out and move and be three-dimensional.” Each limited edition print is an original work of art personally printed, numbered, and signed by Marianne.
She lives in Anchorage, AK, with her family. Every year, she and her husband choose a remote area of the state to explore, an enterprise that is often reflected in her art.
