Marina Brown creates dynamic watercolor and pastel works that focus on African American life and culture. Within both her portraiture and more narrative pieces, vibrancy, color, and movement are elements that she parallels to the African American experience and African diaspora. These qualities transcend into her subjects and their environments. Her paintings of dancing figures, Honky Tonks, praise services, and farm and home life produce the same rhythm and harmony that she reflects was present in her experience as a dancer in her early life.
