Marilyn Hurst

In the early nineties it was time to rediscover myself and I underwent an existential crisis culminating in an urge to take up painting.   Since that time, the work has expanded beyond anything I could have dreamed or imagined.

It would seem that life thrives on change and the transition to becoming an artist has been a tremendous learning curve and along the way I have developed a new found respect for the resolve which is necessary to make the art profession work for oneself.

In 1997 I moved to Cabo San Lucas, Baja, Mexico where we opened a 2nd floor studio in the downtown area.  It was there that my real art education began.  As testimony to the creative spirit, over the next 13 years our humble beginnings morphed into becoming the most respected art gallery in Los Cabos and the Golden Cactus Gallery’s eclectic collection of artists and art became the benchmark of excellence for the southern Baja.

My paintings reflect a ménage of life experience, and creative energy.  The landscapes, florals and expressionist abstracts are as always, inspired by the colors of Mexico and the beauty of my home in the Pacific Northwest.

At the moment I am painting from my studio in White Rock, BC Canada.
