Marianna Seaton is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice includes drawing, painting, printmaking,  sculpture, and installation.  Her work considers personal habits, systems of every day survival, and concerns for the environment and humanity.  She explores common objects, such as the cardboard box, to examine nuances of contemporary life.   

Her abstract drawings include direct rubbings, tracings, and multiple forms of mark making that relate to movement through the landscape.  Sculptural installations embrace the mood of often overlooked objects and structures that are depended upon.  She uses her art making to cultivate awareness, and to reflect upon her contributions in the globalized world.  

Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, Marianna grew up in an entrepreneurial family with depression era parents.  They valued repurposing materials and limiting waste.  They had maker's hands.  Her work reflects on this sense of thriftiness, stewardship, and creativity.  Marianna has lived and worked in North Texas since 1998.
