Marianne Hall is a visual artist with a background in design and a love of tactile abstract forms that exude a sense of spirit.

She was raised in the shadow of the auto industry in Detroit, Michigan and was recognized early in life for her curiosity and talent for making things. Hall went on to earn her BFA in Fibers from Wayne State University. 

Her travels have taken her across the world where she fell in love with the handmade papers of Japan and Korea, and to places where she was introduced to the indigenous cultures of Africa, Australia, and North America.

In 2019 she was chosen as a participant for SURFACE: Emerging Artists of New Mexico. Last year her work was shown at the Arts Thrive Benefit for the Albuquerque Museum, in Albuquerque, and at the Farmington Museum in Farmington, New Mexico.

2020 found her work in the online exhibits: Socially Distanced and Rough Around the Edges juried by Jen Tough of the Jen Tough Gallery in Santa Fe. She is also a featured artist in SWContemporary's Field Guide 2020, a guidebook to New Mexico's art and culture, and at the Arc Gallery, San Francisco, CA, 'Fragments' exhibit Dec. 3 - 19. 

Marianne makes her home in New Mexico. Her studio is located at the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque.
