Painter, illustrator, author, educator, speaker.... Whatever the situation calls for. Marilyn resists being catalogued into a school or style, but leans toward color and rich surface, utilizing landscape and figurative elements with ease. Her passion is horses and landscapes.
"I try to speak in many languages but oils are my choice of medium," says Marilyn.
Born in Sayre, Oklahoma in 1936, Todd-Daniels earned her doctorate in Higher Education with an art emphasis from Texas Tech University in Lubbock on a Helen Jones Leadership Fellowship in 1980. Other degrees are a Masters in Printmaking and Painting from Tulsa University (1966) under Alexander Hogue and a BFA from the University of Oklahoma in 1958.
While chairman of Art at Florida Keys Community College, she earned two Outstanding Teacher of America awards for innovative educational programs. She also taught art at Midland College in Midland,Texas, then served until 2010 as an associate professor of drawing and painting at Collin Community College in McKinney, Texas.
