A mother... An artist... A publisher of human emotion... For the first time together, an autobiographical anthology of 40 FULL-COLOR art prints by "M. Zapp", expressing her love and experience as a mother. This current anthology collection of her art work is representative of the first project of this genre, which she completed as a mother, producing a series of three dozen different original art prints, which sold out 1500 copies each in less than a year. This specific cycle of material she calls -- "The Family Series" -- reflecting a unifying theme expressing the joy and love of family life and raising children amazingly illustrated in her own famously unique style. She explains: “After my first born, Mark, was born, I created the first piece for The Family Series, 'Mother's Love', in my forties, I had three children a year apart. My time was now occupied marveling, inspired and caring. I had no relatives to share my beautiful children or my strong feelings and emotions of being a parent, so the artist within me shared them with you. I was a mother, an artist, and the publisher of the feelings I needed to share. These art pieces also served as a biography of my life and my love as a mother – the feelings of joy, anxieties and emotions. So, I became a publisher of the feelings I needed to share and over the years many mothers, and even fathers, have understood my work.” “For the first time in a collection together, many of these prints are still owned by numerous people worldwide who have identified and collected my work. My son, Mark, modeled for 'Jesus and the Lamb' and then cut his hair and shaved so that he would not be recognized as the model. My daughter, Lea, poised as the Virgin Mary for me. This book includes some, but not all, of the work I have done on this quest, that ended with my models and the youngest daughter, Erika's, teen experiences.”

Marilyn Zapp (M Zapp) was born in 1929, in beautiful Appleton, Wisconsin. She learned about life in the Great Depression and worked her way through several colleges, not only graduating from the Cleveland Art Institute in 1951, but also majored in Literature and Philosophy at the John Carrol University in the late 1950’s. She studied writing, literature, art, education, graphic arts and journalism classes at Monterey Penn College and Saddleback College, California. Afterward, she spent the next several decades traveling the U.S., Europe, Mexico, the Middle East, and even to China as a consultant guest of the Chinese Government. Throughout her life, Marilyn Zapp always worked as a self-employed artist and has won many awards doing so, including a portrait for the Catalina Art Show. She was represented in the Cleveland Art Museum Travel Show, First Place in San Clemente Art Association, Favorite Artist Trophy (Laguna Beach, CA) and First Place in Niguel Art Association. She has painted hundreds of portraits, including Bishop Begin (Cleveland) and was founder and president of the Sawdust Art Festival: the home of local artists in Laguna Beach. Marilyn Zapp's artwork has been seen internationally on prints and greeting cards. She wrote and illustrated the “Children's Bill of Rights” and other work commissioned by Andrew Cimerman. She has created art for many organizations including the 'Society of the Little Flower' and the Right to Life organizations. She has illustrated for several books including “Song for a Night Season” by Lois Bogardes, and “A Squirrel for Susie” by Dr. Shirley Forbing (the author of “Powerful Parenting”) and Dr. Scofield. From the Preface by Ed Scofield Ph.D: "There's no doubt about it. Some artists such as the incredible Marilyn Zapp were born in the wrong country. Marilyn's art works belong in The Louvre in Paris. Perhaps she is not meant for this mundane world where boredom and apathy reign supreme. How one with so much talent could live such nothingness, would make Marilyn crawl into a shell. God beams down on her with a withering glance, implanting in her cranium immeasurable talent, more than she can utilize in one lifetime. Local greatness is living in your midst."
