Marino was born in Livorno, Italy, migrating to the USA as a child and settling in Hoboken, N.J. with his family.
Marino was drafted in the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam. The military’s GI bill offered him an opportunity to attend the School of Visual Arts in N.Y. for several years. He studied art, taking classes in drawing, sculpture and mixed media. He built a solid client base, solely by word of mouth, doing pet portraits using pastels.
Marino took time off to raise a family while working on Wall Street. Now retired and residing in Red Bank for the past 30 years, photography has become his passion and path chosen for the creativity it offers. It allows him to search for and capture the unique shots found all around him with favorites being flowers, cars and buildings. From bold to subtle colors, from nature to man-made, he embraces them all.
Marino is a member of The Guild of Creative Arts, The Monmouth Museum and The Art Alliance of Monmouth County.
His photographs have been selected and exhibited in juried and non-juried shows at the Monmouth Museum, the Guild of Creative Arts, St. George’s–by-the-River (The Canterbury Art Show) and The Art Alliance of Monmouth County.
