Recently, we stumbled upon a very gifted artist, Marie Tippets, and we can’t seem to get enough of her work. It doesn’t hurt that she has a beautiful painting of our Tri-Corner Bowl, simply entitled, The Nambe Bowl.
Marie Tippets is a professional painter, painting still life, figures and landscapes in pastel, and the winner of several awards. She has a particular fondness for still life.
The objects she chooses are sometimes extraordinary, but often, simple. They are things that evoke an emotion or stir a memory. Once the set has been orchestrated, it is the placement of light that really makes it come alive for her – casting shadows and creating magical contrasts between light and dark, and between what is seen and not seen.
Here’s just a few of our favorites from Marie’s collection – visit her at marietippets.com to learn more.
