Marissa was born and raised in Montana where a love for the outdoors instilled an emotional connection to the landscape. She currently lives in Charleston, SC; painting the marsh, children at the beach or tractors on a construction site. Her use of thick paint and bold brush strokes brings an emotional vitality into her work. She studied graphic design / fine art at Montana State University and has studied under artists such as Bill Davidson and Karen Hewitt Hagan.
