#15 Marilyn Borglum has been a professional artist for over twenty-nine years.
She is Co-Founder of Borglum Art Education and Move America.
Marilyn received her Master of Fine Arts in painting from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, in 1993. While she was a student there, she was awarded the graduate teaching position for printmaking. While she had been drawing and painting horses since she was a young girl, she began her in-depth study of the horse, as an art student as both a printmaker and painter. Her exploration of the horse’s form has expanded for over two decades, often working on very large-scale life-sized equine portraits. Her equine paintings have been featured in Dressage Today, Hanover Lifestyle Magazine, Inside Hanover, The Laurel Magazine, and many online periodicals.
Her new large-scale narrative portraiture series demonstrates her mastery of the acrylic medium, her attention to detail, and her love for the intellectual challenge in creating narrative work.
She has been influenced by the expressionist works of William de Kooning, and Ben Shahn, and the equine work of Deborah Butterfield and others.
