This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Marian Fortunati's everyday world stimulates her to share her views through her art. Her long career as a teacher and principal, working with children and adults, her family, and her love of travel have provided her with constant sources of inspiration. She has studied drawing and painting in formal courses and workshops with artists she admires and now strives to capture the humor and beauty of the world as she interprets it.

Marian is an Associate Member of the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, and is active in several local art groups, including the San Fernando Valley Art Club, the Valley Artists Guild and Women Painters West.

Some of Fortunati's favorite new paintings have recently received awards and a few years back one was critiqued in The Artists' Magazine in a 2008 online issue. Currently she is working on paintings celebrating the places she explores and the people with whom she interacts during her travels and explorations.
