She was raised in Houston, Texas nearby the world renowned Menil Collection and MFAH, both, along with the visions of the Surrealists became her driving influence.
Her work incorporates dream-like imagery which expresses emotions not readily conveyed through traditional landscape painting or realistic settings, and the resulting artworks touch upon our own questions of life, love, fear, and the unknown.
She started her art career as a mixed media collage artist, obtaining a BFA at the University of North Texas. Throughout her studies, she discovered her love-affair with the camera and, following a summer in Missoula, Montana at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, she found herself immersing into the photographic work that has now become her trademark.
Winner of the AmericanContemporary.art awards 20201, Marisa lives now in Colorado with her husband, who she fondly calls Captain Awesome.
