MEDIUM: Acrylic Paint
SPECIALTY: ✔ Technique
My preferred medium is acrylic since it really works well when layering with a variety of brushes, shapers, palette knives etc.
Every creation has an element of surprise as it comes to life on my easel.
My focus is on colour and design. An impressionistic expression of florals, influenced by the abstract.
Meant to draw you into the conversation without providing all the information. Intriguing.

Teaching How to Self Critique
Mastrius has done wonders for my confidence. I have managed to step way outside of my comfort zone which has in turn given rise to so many more opportunities to further my art career.

MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
Marjorie Mae is best known for her vibrant and dramatic interpretations of the explosion of colour she encounters as she explores nature’s lush and enchanting beauty (she was mesmerised by a recent visit to Monet’s gardens).
Every painting is a journey of discovery for her; whether she is capturing the light reflecting in her garden or conveying the elegance of a bloom, her work evokes emotion and tells an engaging story. It is her love and knowledge of colour that gives her compositions their vivid quality. Workshops and online courses from artists of varied disciplines have opened her eyes to the countless ways of expressing her passion for colour and texture. As a new painting comes to life under her brushes she has been heard to comment, “This is where I feel most alive!”
She has also enjoyed instructing small groups of budding artists and has been thrilled to watch as they take courage to place paint on canvas! Her goal is to continue to develop her art as a loose and painterly expression of the world she encounters.
Marjorie Mae has been an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists since 2016 and was recently (July 2020) awarded SFCA status by the Federation “In Recognition of Extraordinary Achievement in the Field of the Visual Fine Arts.”
