Welcome to The Art Edit; my very own edit of art making pursuits.
I, Marissa Lico am the owner and creative behind this small business, based in the beautiful Central West, NSW Australia.
I developed an affinity for human gestures and familiarity during my studies at the ANU and have since exhibited in solo and group shows in Australia and the UK. I connect in every sense to my Italian heritage, particularly family gatherings which centre around food and associated traditions. Through painting I depict the beauty in everyday scenes (authentic food experiences from my childhood, home cooking and trips throughout Italy), inviting the viewer to resonate with emotion and reminiscence.
Line drawings of intimate human encounters and architecture (homes), abstract painting, aerial photography, and hands-on workshops, are my jam.
Thanks for following along my journey and for all the love and support. It means the world!
