Marianna M. Duford...an artist with wanderlust. A bit of a gypsy and lifelong artist, Marianna, brings her love of the outdoors to her art and everything that she does. She doesn't limit her artwork to just one medium and likes to let the inspiration decide whether it would be better in watercolor, oils or acrylics. Her love of plein air painting and travel have been the perfect marriage. Art and travel forays have taken her from Italy to Africa, the Mayan Coast to Portugal, Florida to California, Maine and the Bahamas and in between. The South Island of New Zealand to Tasmania and back again.
Always, upon returning home to Colorado she wonders why she had to go so far to be inspired when she is surrounded by beauty every day of the year! Marianna lives in Silverthorne with her patient and loving husband, Bill, and golden retriever, Jessie.
