WHO WE ARE
VISIONARY LONDA R. MARKS
During 15th century Florence, Italy, Cosimo de’ Medici said, “Art and Magic always call to each other.”
Creating magical worlds is what Londa does best. One of her world’s is, World Of Tarot for her tarot projects.
Visual artist Londa R. Marks’ studio is located on Way Of The Sword in the art capital of the world, Florence, Italy where ancient knowledge, code and ancient symbolism is the way of life and a magnificent source for her studies and inspiration. Londa is a visionary of art, music, technology and cryptography: the art of writing codes or solving codes. She is also founder of Rock Legend News digital
Londa studied under New York artist Murray Stern (1927–1985) in early 1970s. Murray was an art professor from Athens, Ohio, whose work is in the Kennedy Museum of Art Collection. His work is seen in 30 Broadway plays and 50 movies including Ragtime and Cotton Club.
Art Professor Murray Stern said,“Your original illustrations are knocking me on my ear. You’re a natural.”
Twice published by the world’s largest publisher of tarot decks and kits such as Lord Of The Rings Tarot, U.S. Games Systems, Inc., owns 80 of Londa’s original oil paintings she created for a tarot deck and archive them in a private museum with Salvador Dali and 15th century Visconti-Sforza Italian tarot. U.S. Games also owns and published the first ever created digital tarot deck by
Londa R. Marks.
Stuart Kaplan, CEO U.S. Games Systems said, “You are one of the most talented artist’s I have had the honor of working with.”
Her earliest inspiration came from her grandmother's where the art books were and when she saw the back of her grandmother's couch or, in Londa's eyes, saw a large canvas that was ideal for the perfect medium, her grandmother's handy lipstick. Being age 2 has its advantages...Being Catholic opened the Italian doors to art that resonated with her and has not stopped.
Approaching her teens, as she discovered how rock music inspired her artwork, her daily walks to Catholic school turned a sidewalk into her stage and the grass her audience. She would sing to the grass then continue on her large front porch after school - ten steps up from the street - after plugging her radio into the porch outlet, well, until her mother ripped the plug out of the socket during her performance. Nevertheless, she could always retreat to creating her own worlds, silently through the magic of art.
Born: February 26, 1952, Marietta, Ohio, United States
