About Me

Hello!

I'm Marcy Mitchell.

My artwork is usually focused on abstract, and impressionistic landscapes, although I also enjoy developing my technique through other art styles. Mainly self-taught, I work in a variety of mediums with an emphasis on oil, acrylic, and oil pastel.

 

Being a Southwestern Michigan native, I couldn’t help but be influenced by Lake Michigan, and the surrounding scenery of the local area.  I also draw inspiration from the four years I spent living abroad in Perth, Scotland, and the other places I have traveled.

 

Applying abstraction allows me to explore the range of possibilities through line, and color while pushing the boundaries of how the landscapes are usually perceived.  I often imagine there is much more beauty in this world than we are able to see with just our eyes. I believe it can be found in the midst of light and shadows. The spaces in between.
