Portraits of St. Louis Artists: Marlene Lewis

Marlene Lewis 1

Marlene Lewis is a painter whose work ranges from barely figurative to abstract. She uses loose, vibrant color with a palette that reminds me of Helen Frankenthaler. Her studio is full of light shining on white walls, in contrast to the spaces of the men in the last two day's posts. The brightness suits her personality and her art.

The last photo was taken as an exposure test and didn't get my attention, Marlene noticed the reflection when looking at my camera's screen and immediately saw the possibilities. She was right.

Her style's different, but I like it. And yes, that last shot's a keeper.

Let me get this straight. She's talented, extremely attractive and has a great personality -- doesn't seem fair.

All posts at this artists' series are very good. I especially like the bottom photo where Marlene Lewis is reflected in the mirror. Brilliant!
