In the studio I take my ideas of nature and abstract them using mixed media techniques of painting and collage and printmaking. I am drawn to the organic patterns found in nature such as the patterns in sand, water, grass, land etc. I often use a grid design in my work to hold these patterns together. Sometimes I see these grids as puzzles which interconnect one another. I am very involved in the process of experimenting how different patterns relate to one another. Color, value and texture are very important elements in my inspiration and artwork.
My name is Marlene McGuire. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. My work is mixed-media paintings combining many materials and directly inspired by nature. I am a graduate of RISD, The Rhode Island School of Design, with a BFA in Printmaking and Textile Design. I spend my time juggling a busy life as a mom, professional artist, and elementary art teacher. I love my summers by the ocean where I can paint and play and enjoy nature.
