Marissa Sweet is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and Ontario Society of Artists who integrates the principles of Feng Shui into her artwork. Her practice in this ancient form of metaphysics has inspired her to create landscapes that brings awareness to our interconnectivity to nature.
With a BA Economics degree and years in various corporate roles, Marissa currently facilitates art workshops in the Durham Region and at her home studio. She has attended various courses at the Toronto School of Art and is a member of numerous art associations.
In 2019, she was one of the 18 selected artists to participate in the inaugural Landscape Artist of the Year Canada TV show on CBC and Makeful TV. Marissa is currently the Vice President and Nominations Chair/Social Media Director of the Society of Canadian Artists and a member of the Oshawa Arts Association and the Federation of Canadian Artists.
“It is in nature that I feel renewed and inspired.
My goal is to rekindle memories that would make you escape the busy-ness of the modern world. To be able to reflect back into simpler times and happy memories. A time to just be.
Each painting is a memory to our connection to Mother Earth, with the hope that my paintings take you back to your special moment and the many stories in between.”
