Hinkle & Co.

Marlena Hinkle 

                   My name is Marlena Hinkle and I am the owner and artist behind Hinkle & Company. Formerly known as Unum Gallery. I am a self taught Latina painter that was born and raised in Long beach, CA. I use oil paint, watercolor and charcoal graphite pencils for my creations. I value nature and strive to keep our oceans clean by donating to Surfrider Foundation so that surfers and swimmers can keep on splashing! 

I live in Ventura County and am married to a handsome surfer who supports my "vida loca", my dreams and my love of art. Literature and art has saved my life and I wanted to share this journey with you. 

I am currently in the process of writing a book about how I was able to overcome a lot of challenges as a young adult and manage the waves that come with growing up as a creative person. I hope you can ride this wave with me and maybe I'll see you in the ocean!

with all my heart and soul,
