Marilyn Stocker (1928 - present) is a successful multi-media artist. In her youth, she attended the American Academy of Art in Chicago for dress design. After graduation, she got a job designing for Glen Manufacturing. Once she realized she wouldn’t be happy in the field for life, she returned to school at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. She then taught art for ten years, part of this time being at Newark High School. In addition to work, she also volunteered her time to the Licking County Players and Licking County Art Association.
Stocker married and had two children with her first husband. Later, she remarried to George Stocker, a president of Stocker and Sitler Oil Co., in 1981.
Her artwork was displayed in many galleries including the Licking County Art Gallery, Licking County Art Association, and Juried Ohio Watercolor Society Exhibition.
