Her childhood and early adult years were spent in Argentina, where she trained to be an elementary school teacher, but was never able to teach due to unstable government conditions.
Marisa doesn’t restrict herself to any specific medium, preferring instead to let the inspiration guide her. She paints in watercolor, acrylic or oil. She works on canvas, board and even tile.
“These works are done with a balance of designing elements and intuitive painting. More often than not, the subject for a painting comes unexpectedly and at the same time the idea of the medium in which it will be done also takes place right there and then. Approaching the painting as how it can be, portrayed or transformed, which colors or technical choices, all those decisions, make each piece unique in which a part of the artist goes with it. To handle the mediums in a way that becomes a thing of beauty and talent, it has always fascinated and attracted me.”
