Marla Beth Enowitz, the abstract expressionist artist behind Marla Beth Designs, is pleased to announce the launch of her new website and online store. The shop at marlabethdesigns.com features several of the Rye Brook mompreneur’s large-scale paintings in a range of sizes as well as original mini-works.
On a mission to put a little sparkle into homes and businesses, Enowitz turned her love of painting from hobby to business once the pandemic hit. Her designs, described as equal parts whimsical and sophisticated, are often inspired by the imaginative minds of children.
“I specialize in what I like to call ‘happy art,’” Enowitz said. “My work is meant to bring people together at a time when division is all around us. Some things can still be simple and pure. The creation of Marla Beth Designs has been a way for me to turn lemons into [pink] lemonade.”
Enowitz’s acrylics flow intuitively, forming cascading organic drips and stunning marbling effects in vivid hues, evoking happiness, optimism and positivity. Her large-scale custom pieces are featured in some of the most beautiful private homes and businesses in the tri-state including The First Bank of Greenwich, The Spa at The J House and a 600 square foot mural at The Westchester.
In addition to her bespoke creations, offered in sizes from 11x14 to 24x48, Enowitz’s secondary collection, XO, Marla Beth, includes a full line of 4x4 mini original works. Shoppers also have the opportunity to commission art.
From mock-ups to masterpieces, Enowitz takes clients on a fanciful journey when she creates a custom piece with her signature design process. “I love collaborating – from concept to completion – to create art that uplifts the space,” she shared. “All commissioned pieces include virtual consultations. We begin with a color wheel to determine your preferred palette, then move to the mock-up stage and finally to your finished piece.”
In honor of the launch, Enowitz donated 90 of her XO, Marla Beth love-themed mini-works to staff and patients at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth). A curated selection canvases from the limited series are also available to purchase online with new pieces added each week.
“As a mom, I’m touched by the life-changing work performed by the team at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital,” said Enowitz. “The arts are so important for children – as an emotional outlet, growth opportunity and, sometimes, a much needed distraction. The hospital’s Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy program helps children and their families understand and adjust to illness and hospitalization. My hope is to bring a smile to some of these amazing families and the staff that do so much for them.”
