Marianne Vick's deep love of nature has had a profound effect on her life, obvious in her wildlife art. Her detail painting style and ability to visualize in three dimension propelled her into a career of painting on beach stones begining in 1972. Hand-held replicas of almost every animal imaginal have become sought after collectables . For the past ten years the focus of her painting has shifted from representational wildlife paintings to allegorical pictorials, featuring birds and their various characteristics as stand-ins for our unique human conditions.
