One of her current passions is finding and painting iconic signs which she is calling her "NEON Collection.
. "Saving the signage of our past is a race against time. Many will be lost forever as new laws and zoning mean that many of these unique signs and icons are irreplacable. My personal goal is to visually save as many of these landmarks as possible with my historic collage paintings.............." Marla
I delight in capturing and preserving the unique essence of vintage signs through the images you will find in my NEON collage paintings. This series is a joy. It has allowed me to incorporate in my paintings, skies that cannot be captured on camera, and my vision of the landmarks"
