Marnie Ernst Zoa ~ Born in Milwaukee Wisconsin in 1974 - Graduated from Kalamazoo College in Michigan in 1996 - Began painting in 1993 -Living and creating in Corvallis, Oregon since 2001.
In addition to my love of art,I am a wife and new mother, real estate agent and writer.
Nature inspires me. I look to express the emotion and beauty I see in everything that surrounds me. My pallet reflects my passion for animals, for color, for culture - for life!
I believe animals are a treasure - they are healers - unconditional lovers - innocent and beautiful. The glorious diversity in nature allows for limitless inspiration.
Pet Portraits are one of my favorite projects. I love to meet people and find out about their pets...if they are with us or passed on...I do my best to capture their personalities and inner light...the love of their pets is always apparent to my clients in the paintings their commission. If you or someone you know would enjoy having a tribute to their beloved animal friend(s), contact me. I would be honored and delighted!
