Hello! I am Marissa Gain. I recently graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College and am working towards a career as both a visual artist and educator.  I strive to create paintings that exemplify human emotion. I am interested in story-telling and the creation of narratives along with my works. I am influenced by books, people and artists within the Impressionism and Pop Art movements. I currently find myself experimenting with the traditional painting, drawing and mixed media as well as the more contemporary ideas of performance and social art. It is my desire, not only create works, but to inform others about the history and process of art making in order to inspire them to become artists.

I am currently living in Buckhannon, West Virginia. I am available for any freelance or commission painting or drawing.
