A multidisciplinary artist whose work includes, & often combines, performance, mixed & multi media, photography, and verse
She has little formal education in the arts, but her exploration in styles and mediums continuously ebbs and flows. The of the moment nature of photography has stuck with her throughout her career, coming through as her go-to way of expressing herself.
Over the years, performance has become another favorite, creating a more direct and immediate connection with the viewer, and recently Marissa has begun to use her art practice as a way to explore and understand her mixed heritage.
Exploring rituals and traditions, communication through intimate interaction, and documentation of ephemera are recurring themes throughout her art making practice. Capturing moments physically, whether on film or otherwise, is one of her favorite pastimes.
