About the Artist:

Marisa S White is an award-winning artist best known for seamlessly stitching multiple photographs together, weaving personal narratives through surreal and fantastical imagery. The use of surrealism in her work isn’t to call upon the dream world, but to hyperbolize emotions and experiences that aren’t always so easy to put into words.

Marisa grew up in Houston, Texas and would often wander the galleries of the Menil Collection. This is where she was introduced to surrealism. Seeing the works of René Magritte, Giorgio de Chirico and Max Ernst opened her eyes and imagination to new possibilities. She spent the next several years painting clouds on everything.

Originally a drawing and painting major, Marisa fell in love with photography in college and eventually began incorporating it into her work, creating mixed media collages. In 2012, she was introduced to photoshop at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, and her artistic world forever changed.

Marisa has received numerous accolades for her art, is collected internationally, and has exhibited across the US and in Europe; most notably at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California.

She currently resides in Colorado with her husband, whom she fondly refers to as Captain Awesome, and their two rescue fur babies.
