WHAT’S NEXT FOR OWNER

Marks plans to remain in Dayton, Ohio, but has accepted a job in retail sales for Dayton, Kentucky-based SofaBurn Records. 

She will also do freelance artwork for the company and continue to do commissioned portraits. 

“I would focus on an art career,” Marks said. “I just don’t have time to swing both, and I am a lot happier doing art.”

Marks said she plans to focus more on volunteerism here. 

“Thank you for four years of support (Dayton), and continue to support local,” she said.
