Biography

Marissa graduated from Oregon State University in June 2015 with her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. During her time as a student, she was awarded five scholarships and three grants; which funded an art historical research trip to London, a painting series on Sea Star Wasting Syndrome and an art exhibit that challenged historical gender roles. From 2012-2015, she co-hosted a weekly art, design & tech talk show on KBVR-FM (OSU’s student-run radio station) called "Mike & Mari" which highlighted community exhibits, featured local artists and discussed parallels between art and modern technology.

She is currently serving as Co-lead of the Grant committee for the Benton County Cultural Coalition, a non-profit that funds arts & culture organizations for projects that benefit the Benton County community. In her free time, Marissa makes artwork addressing gender and racially-based issues, through both a historical and modern lens. At the present, she is splitting her art focus between her still-life paintings of vintage aprons and a collaborative installation project addressing whtie privilege and institutional racism.
