Marjorie Wood Hamlin
Marjorie has studied fine art since she was 12. She has a BA with a major in Applied Art and Art History from Willamette University. She also studied at San Francisco State University, Academy of Art San Francisco and with Stanford University in Venice Italy.
After years of study, she now creates her own style, pushing the envelope of innovation to make new sensations for the eye of the beholder. Creating different series keeps her imagination renewed.
Her paintings have been in exhibits throughout the western United States, New York and Florence, Italy where she won the recognition of the international jury at the Florence International Contemporary Biennale. That exhibition is a part of the United Nations programs to promote understanding between cultures through art. The United Nations was again a vehicle for her work in 2015 when her video of environmental paintings was part of just 36 artists shown there for International Women’s Day. The same video of paintings was also shown in Granada and Almeria, Spain.
She was director of a highly successful after school art program for migrant farm laborer’s children in Tracy, California. She now teaches workshops and gives private lessons.
Her work is in private collections and in corporate offices with shows at Syntex and Synopsis in California. Collectors come back repeatedly for new work or to commission special pieces.
