My name is Marissa Neuman and my two middle names are Chris and Zain. Zain is my mother’s maiden name and represents the lineage with which I most identify. I use Chris Zain as an artist name for exhibitions purposes but most people know me as Marissa. I both love and appreciate both names, you may call me either.

I happily live and work on the north side of Chicago and find it exciting to connect outside of digital screens and the beast that is social media. If you're interested in doing a studio visit, talking art, or friendship feel free to reach out.
