Marnie Mitchell Lister





















Marnie Mitchell Lister has always had a passion for photography. When she was 16, her parents bought her an all-manual Pentax MX and she joined her high school photography club where she "developed" a love for the darkroom. She continued on with her photography education over the years, taking many college courses and countless workshops. 


Over 25 years after receiving her first film camera, Marnie went digital, although it was a slow transition. She felt like she was constantly defending her digital images to film photographers, but once she saw the infinite artistic possibilities digital had to offer, she just went with it and never looked back.


Marnie has won multiple awards for her photography as well as having some of her work featured in several publications such as La Vie Claire Magazine, NJ Countryside Magazine, Upstage Magazine, Down the Shore Publishing, and the Asbury Park Press.


When Marnie isn't out snapping pictures she also works as a freelance graphic artist and web designer as well as working with her brother at his Cafe in Asbury Park. In the winter she hangs up her camera and concentrates on her other passion, writing. Marnie is an award-winning screenwriter having completed four features and countless shorts. She hopes to someday write something worthy of the big screen.


In the summer you can find Marnie displaying her work at several outdoor shows like the Ocean Grove Boardwalk Art Show and Brielle Day. She enjoys being a member of the Guild of Creative Arts, the MCAC, and also several writers’ communities like the JSWS (Jersey Shore Writers Studio). She currently lives in Monmouth County with her husband and two children.
