Marlene Steele is recently appointed Arts Ambassador from the Portrait Society of America to the State of Ohio. The focus of her 3 year tenure is furthering the outreach mission of this national organization: fostering greater awareness of Portrait and Figurative Art and to inspire interested artists toward consistent improvements in methods and techniques. Marlene has been a practicing portrait and figurative artist for 24 years in Ohio. Marlene's figurative and portrait paintings are sensitive and insightful, portraying not only the physical likeness of her subjects, but also their essential character in a traditional yet painterly style. She teaches classes and seminars related to figurative drawing and painting and has also gained respect as an effective courtroom artist. Marlene's cityscapes, depicting the ever changing inner urban environment in a fresh, contemporary style, are noted in numerous exhibits nationally and most recently included in the Govenor Kasich's Ohio Landscape Invitational and the Ohio State Fair. Her prize winning works are recognized and collected both corporately and privately.
