ABOUT THE ARTIST
My name is Marlena Hinkle and I am the owner and artist behind Hinkle & Company.
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 strive to keep our oceans clean by donating to Sea Save Foundation.
I live in Los Angeles County and am married to a handsome surfer who supports my “vida loca”, my dreams and my love of art.
Literature, the ocean 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. The book is due to be released in the fall of 2023. I hope you can ride this wave with me and maybe I’ll see you in the ocean!
