Biography 

Hello, my name is Marilyn Vicente and I am from Richardson, Texas. My primary media I currently use are micron pens and paint brushes as my tools of choice to create intricate, abstract designs. Many of my pen drawings have been featured throughout the Dallas metroplex in places such as The RGB Gallery, Southside on Lamar's Janette Kennedy Gallery and at Kettle Art Gallery. I've also been a featured artist for KERA's Art and Seek.

Recently, my custom vinyl toy sets were part of a group exhibition at the Bottleneck Art Gallery Brooklyn, New York organized by Vinyl Thoughts. 
In January, I was part of "Show Me The Munny 4" at Strangeway's Dallas hosted by Atama & Company. Both of these shows were covered by several toy bloggers such as Urban Toy Daily and SpankyStokes among other bloggers.

I have donated some of my works to raise money for charitable causes and fundraisers to Art Conspiracy's Art Con 8 and Kettle Art Gallery's
 "For the Love of Kettle". I have done free community art workshops/events for children. Some of these opportunities have occurred via ArtLoveMagic.

Artist Statement 

The way that I draw and paint my art reflects my unique personality it allows me to abstractly communicate my thoughts. I transfer all my personality, 
onto my drawings. My inspiration comes within my conscious mind. When I create, I feel alive and free when the pen and paintbrush takes my hand and guides my hand along. As I work, I transfer all of my personality and being onto my drawings and paintings. 

They not only serve as my voice to the world, but they have also shaped me and taught me how to grow as a person. Working to create them has fostered in me a sense of patience and diligence.
