About the Artist

  • Marit Menzin

    My kindergarten teacher Lia discovered my talent for drawing. I attended many art workshops and I had an oil painter for a mentor while very young. I loved to read books and I also loved to write plays and poems for school. In college I majored in Biology and Chemistry. After a few fires and one suspected carbon monoxide leak at my graduate school laboratory I decided that I had enough of chemical threats and hazards. I then studied computers and worked as a chemistry high school teacher and as a computer programmer. As I pursued my scientific career I continued to illustrate while studying different methods of painting. I participated in workshops entitled How to Illustrate Children
