Marilyn Antram: Ohio-born artist and design major at Ohio State University, She has had the good fortune to be able to spend her early years in the vibrant, creative arena of American Greetings Inc., Cleveland, OH. After her employment with American Greetings Inc. she perused longevity career as a freelance designer and graphic designer. She felt the calling to leave the commercial aspect of art and pursue one in fine arts. Having done extensive illustration during her career, drawing wasn’t a issue, so she consulted with some of Jacksonville’s well known artists and began her future in Fine Arts. Marilyn Antram has found it to be a rewarding decision for her, both professionally and personally. The learning continues by interacting with many artistic and talented professionals in Jacksonville, participating in workshops, attending shows, galleries, and the opportunity to continue as a dedicated painter. She is currently both a member and treasurer for, First Coast Plein Air Painters, Jacksonville Artists Guild, St. Augustine Art Association, and Pines and Palms Artists in Thomasville, GA.
