November 2018 Mind of the Artist CHAW Blog: Marilyn Christiano

Marilyn Christiano

CHAL member since 2003, photographer Marilyn Christiano, talks about her work and her evolving love of photography in this month’s CHAW blog series. She has won awards in many of CHAL’s shows and exhibits regularly at the Hill Center Regional shows on Capitol Hill. Marilyn states,  “A successful photo evokes a sense of place, makes a connection with people, records a passing moment or changing place, or produces an image that elicits a “what is this” response.” Her work is gorgeous!
