Marshall Crossman is a contemporary painter working in the San Francisco Bay Area. Marshall paints primarily in oil on canvas, with additional exploration in watercolor, monotype prints and drawing. Marshall Crossman is represented by art galleries in the US. Her work may be found in private & public collections here and in Europe. Crossman says: "After painting for over 40 years, I am still fascinated by the alchemy & expression of paint. When I relocated to San Francisco in 1977, I was influenced by the Bay Area figurative painters. I paint the figure abstracted by motion, water and emotion. I work in a series, often working on several paintings from different series at the same time. My paintings evolve from the fluid stream of my conscious & subconscious mind. The viewer is free to enjoy the painting’s imagery, color, & surface texture or go deeper and discover an emotional response."
