Bring your talent to the table, leave with a talent you need.

Marion’s Table Talks is a monthly speaker series that highlights talented women and invites female creatives to share their talents.  Each talk features a female speaker who brings her talent to the table and inspires the community attending to share their talents with each other.  We arrive with our talent and we leave with connections to women who have talents we need.

The next installment of Marion’s Table Talks is February 17!

The Inspiration

My grandmother’s name was Marion.  Her business was making tea sandwiches and her dining room table was her headquarters.  Every day women of all ages gathered at her table to support my grandmother’s business.  Some women cut the crust off the sandwiches, some rolled the bread, some spread the interior and some decorated the exterior.

Every woman seated at the table played a different role, but it was always my grandmother who brought the boxes of tea sandwiches to the door when her customers arrived to pick up their order, because my grandmother was the brand.  The talents women at her table allowed my grandmother to carry every box.

We can’t achieve our dreams alone —

we need a table of talented women to support us!

Heather Gentile Collins

Talent: Intuition

Heather Gentile Collins is an artist who works with people all over the world, but whose heart is firmly rooted in Chicago.

Heather’s true passion is creating works of art with deep personal meaning. Whether she is working on fine art commissioned by an individual for their home or large public murals, Heather’s message comes first. Heather’s public murals include many restaurants, businesses, and even some that embody the spirit of a community, like the 150-foot double-sided mural on the Welcome to Roscoe Village  Bridge, a career highlight.

She and her work have been featured many times on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Nate Berkus Show as well as Art Beat Chicago and Fox News. Many of these segments interview and follow Heather as does what she does best: creating a custom mural for a client and working through the challenge of bringing the things they love to life through paint.

Her philosophy is that having uplifting art visible everyday changes the attitude, moods and welfare of those who see it.

Naturally, schools from coast-to-coast are drawn to this idea and Heather’s murals now inspire students from Los Angeles, California to Rye, New York and many points in-between.

Over the years, prints of Heather’s art have been best sellers for Pottery Barn Kids, Pottery Barn Teen, Kohl’s and Restoration Hardware. These collaborations have allowed her to bring positive messages to many more people through reproductions.
Those who own a piece of her original artwork enjoy something that is not only beautiful, but that brings positive energy to their lives and environment.

She is a 1992 graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and lives with her family in Roscoe Village.
