Marissa Vogl | bio [+]
Marissa Vogl is an emerging artist of the Southeast, living and working in Charleston, S.C. With the use of alluring colors and energetic swirls of paint, Marissa channels peaceful vitality to the viewers soul.
Marissa was born and raised in Montana where mountains, rivers and the smell of fresh pine will always be the foundation of her inspiration. She explores fresh color combinations and bold strokes of paint using a palette knife to sculpt the traditional composition of a landscape and many other natural wonders. Most often, Marissa paints her “spirit places”, the places that we go, where we feel our strongest, most alive and that bring us the most joy. Using oils, she paints alla prima where the majority of her painting is done in one session. This technique contributes to her expressionistic approach to the landscape. Ever evolving, Marissa’s paintings are rich in beauty, adventurous to the eye and full of passion!
Since her first gallery appearance in 2009, her work has been collected internationally including Canada, Europe and Japan. She has her bachelor’s of fine art from Montana State University where she focused on graphic design. Her recent accomplishments include her paintings featured in Charleston’s Style and Design Magazine and noted in Southern Living Magazine’s online editorials.
“I have found that my most important tool in painting is not a brush or palette knife but to paint with the absence of doubt. As long as I leave doubt behind I will grow as an artist.”
