Marilyn Baldi, a New Jersey native, moved to Colts Neck in 1986. Since childhood, she has been involved in the visual and performing arts. She incorporated these early interests into her teaching programs for Matawan’s gifted and talented students.
Various venues throughout the state have displayed her watercolors, oils, and sumi paintings. In 2006-2007, for Brookdale’s “History of Art” murals in the visual arts building, Marilyn painted two 8 x 8 foot panels: the “Hall of Bulls” and Cezanne’s “Still Life with Basket of Apples.” In 2008 she assisted in painting the exterior murals at the Belmar Arts Council Gallery.
In 2008 Marilyn began studying photography with Laury Egan at the Guild of Creative Art. Her photographs have been exhibited at the Guild, Belmar Arts Council Gallery, Monmouth Festival of the Arts, Art Alliance of Monmouth County, Monmouth County Library, Colts Neck Library, Brookdale Community College, NJ Flower and Garden Show, Freehold Municipal Buildings, and local businesses. She has received several awards for her work.
