Marni Alyse Sloves is a self-taught San Mateo based contemporary abstract artist. After many years spent in the classroom teaching students with special needs, Marni realized that expressing her creative side is where her true passion lies. Originally creating one-of-a-kind pieces for her own home, Marni’s friends began commissioning paintings for their homes. She loves to work with bright, bold color palettes and various textures. She continually experiments with different mediums striving to create unique pieces. This drive to create combined with her love of making other people smile when they walk into their homes, guides her artistic journey.
