Interested in learning about Marilyn Biles? Every vision of the world implies some sort of philosophy. Biles’ art is motivated by a spiritual force that compels a means of expression. It is the language by which she interprets the universal creative spirit as it becomes known to her. Art allows her to express her passion for finding the truth. Biles seeks to uncover the purposes, boundaries and directions of her mind.

Unselfconsciously, she is exposing her inner life to others whose tastes and opinions are different but nevertheless are as valid as her own.

To the extent that she is able to think and see with a difference, others will in turn be enriched by her art.
