Collection: Marilyn Hurst

In the early nineties it was time to rediscover myself and I underwent an existential crisis culminating in an urge to take up painting. In 1997 I moved to Cabo San Lucas with my husband and we opened a studio in the downtown area where the real art education began. As testimony to the creative spirit, over the years our humble beginnings morphed into becoming the first and most respected art gallery in Los Cabos called the Golden Cactus. The Gallery’s eclectic collection of artists and art became the benchmark of excellence for the southern Baja. Since that time, the work has expanded beyond anything I could have dreamed or imagined.

My paintings reflect a ménage of life experience, and creative energy. The landscapes, florals and expressionist abstracts are as always, inspired by the colors of Mexico. As always it was the excitement of the Mexican culture which provided ongoing inspiration, but it is the joy that comes from reaching within oneself and letting the expression flow from the silence that gives life to my work
