Marion K. Stephenson


Marion has been painting since childhood.  Her professional education began at Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  After graduating, she went to New York City to work

as a graphic designer.  Marion began attending classes at the Art Students League and soon became a full time student immersed in

the study of classical painting with some of the best artists in the country.

Beginning her fine art career painting in oils, Marion soon discovered pastels, and fell in love with the ability to layer pigments while keeping the colors fresh.  She now works in both mediums, which ever catches her fancy.

Her work has been shown in numerous galleries, juried exhibitions, and solo shows.  She has completed many public and private commissions ranging from landscape paintings and portraits, to murals.  Included in her body of work are two large, outdoor murals: one for the city of York, PA; “From Farm to Market”; the other for the National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, PA.

“The motivation  behind my paintings is to give the viewer a peaceful image,

a place to feel relaxed and renewed, an escape from our hectic lives.”
