Marie Liu’s paintings are know for their bold, dynamic use of color and composition. Her technique is a slow, methodical layering of oil paints to ultimately achieve a flawless pattern of shapes and colors.
Inspired by the geographic and historic richness of the Hudson and Delaware regions, in recent years she has focused her energies on landscape painting. She has created a new series of paintings inspired by the numerous creeks and waterfalls in Pike County’s abundant natural places. Having recently moved here, her enthusiasm for this place has compelled her to capture and interpret its special beauty in oil paintings. She has begun to include local people of historic significance into her repertoire of local scenes.
