Marlene Sanaye Yamada

"I celebrate freedom of spirit through the purity of color and brush strokes, light and movement."

Each painting by Marlene Sanaye Yamada immediately sets a mood or conveys an emotion. Full of intriguing details and surprises, the artist hopes to stir your emotions, lift your spirits, take you on your own private journey, and inspire what matters to you most.

Sanaye begins each painting by creating underlying textures, and then builds up multiple translucent, watery layers to produce unexpected results. This element of chance makes each painting truly unique. Sanaye often views her painting process as analogous to life -- learning and celebrating the unexpected surprises.

Marlene Sanaye Yamada is predominantly self-taught.
