Meet the Artists who created  Art Lessons From Grandma
The Grandma - Denise Weiner

Denise’s journey from corporate America to an art studio began sixteen years ago with a watercolor class at a spa. That experience led her on a journey of formal painting classes, art trips to Europe and ultimately the decision to end her successful career in the corporate sector. Denise is now living her dream life filled with art, travel, writing and enjoying her five grandchildren. With over thirty years in communications, marketing and international business, she has learned that art and play enhance everyone’s professional and personal life. 

Denise has passed along her passion for art and creativity to her grandchildren. She has been able to spend the last decade painting and teaching her grandchildren about life as they paint together. Art Lessons from Grandma is her first published book. 

Denise lives in Port Monmouth, New Jersey, with her husband, Mark.

The Illustrator - Marie T. Martinelli


Marie is a talented artist, working primarily in watercolor and pastel. She also runs a successful business designing and sewing special occasion dresses for little girls and making custom dolls. She has two daughters and young grandchildren who are the joys of her life.

Denise and Marie have been friends for many years and working on this book together has been a wonderful experience. 

Marie lives in Middletown, New Jersey with her husband, Lou.
