A Southern Original ... Contemporary Art by Southern Artists

Marilyn Sparks

“It seems to me madness to wake up in the morning and do something other than paint, considering that one may not wake up the following morning.”

~ words of Frank Auerbach by which Marilyn Sparks lives


     Marilyn Sparks’ passion for old barns, vibrant landscapes, and brilliant flowers comes from her southern heritage.  Having always lived in the South, she paints what she knows and loves, what she remembers from her youth, and the pastoral scenes that surround her every day.
      The self-taught artist is continually evolving, recreating and reinventing herself through her bold barns, bright florals, charming children, and peaceful landscapes.  Her years of experience with color, texture, and proportion during her extensive fashion career are evident in the way she combines these elements on canvas.  Her work can be seen in numerous galleries and collections throughout the southeast.     “Making the world a brighter place one painting at a time.”
