Marian MacKerer is a contemporary still life painter who has been working in oil for the past ten years. After a retail management career and raising two children, Marian started painting in 2005 taking an informal acrylic class which led to completing an AFA in Studio Art from Montgomery College, Rockville, MD in 2008. She is a recent resident of Southport, North Carolina, and is an active member of Associated Artists of Southport, Oak Island Art Guild, and The Artisans of St James. She has won awards in juried shows and exhibits locally at the Franklin Gallery, The Artisans Gallery, and Uncorked by the Sea.
Marian strives for capturing three dimensional qualities on a flat canvas, emphasizing light and shadows to capture a realistic still life. She uses a bold palette and stages her compositions with everyday objects. Using both large and small format, Marian tells a story through her compositions to connect the viewer to familiar memories.
