Marianne Caroselli's passion for art began at the tender age often in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. The art world opened to her through ceramics, but soon turned to oil painting and sculpture. This venture became a huge success, with her paintings being published as greeting cards by the prestigious Leanin Tree Greeting Card Company in Boulder, Colorado. Then open edition prints by a New York company. A western calendar company also published her paintings.
Upon the advice of a fellow artist, Marianne began sculpting in 1989. To perfect her trade, Marianne attended many workshops at the Cowboy Artists of America Museum in Kerrville, Texas. During that time Marianne concurrently painted and sculpted, but eventually chose to concentrate on sculpting. She no longer paints but believes that she may return to it one day.
Marianne says that her career has been filled with wonderfully rewarding experiences. She enjoys sharing her love of art with others and making people smile. Many of her pieces, especially those with children and pets, truly bring a smile to your face.
Marianne’s work, which ranges in size from tabletop to life size monuments, is represented in ten galleries in seven states, and her website has the latest creations. Loving art as she does, Marianne has no intentions of retiring or of slowing down. In her spare time, this artist enjoys her grandchildren, family gatherings, golf, and poker with "the ladies". Marianne resides in Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas.
