Marianne Barratt is a Stillwater, Minnesota artist who creates work that highlights the beauty of nature in everyday life through multimedia like oil paint, gouache, water soluble crayon, colored pencil, and graphite. Her art is inspired by the natural world near and far, whether it be a vase of flowers in her home or a beautiful landscape on a faraway trip. Marianne's art is both classic and evocative; she recreates the whimsical inspiration she finds in nature through expressive brushstrokes, vivid color, and light. When looking for inspiration in nature she says "I'm trying to find magic." We offer a selection of Marianne’s original paintings in the showroom, and she is open to accepting a limited number of commissions for special projects.
