Outsider Art Painter
Marianne Vick began painting animals and birds on rocks in 1971 and gained recognition because her work was so original and obsessively detailed. Completely self-taught, she is able to see things in three dimensions and loves the challenge of fitting the form of a grosbeak or turtle onto the irregular surface of a rock. Recently, Marianne has begun painting on wood and canvas to better express personal themes important to her. The new work still utilizes birds and nature, but the content is allegorical. “My deep love of nature has had a profound impact on my life. I choose to express my emotions through my art rather than words.” Tamarack Gallery held a one-person show for Marianne in 2007.
