Biography


Marcia Potucek Streepy creates "pastel" paintings: intimate landscapes and cityscapes or figure work to evoke a sense of atmosphere and immediacy to "reinterpret" the wonder of everyday moments. Her pastel work harnesses the energy of a painting with the power of supersaturated mineral pigments of a pastel to evoke a realistic image. Her oil paintings continue to glow with the power of contrasting neutrals and fluid concentrated hues in an ever changing perfect balance. 


 
"My work is not about realism but the impression of the space, time, and spirit of the object through the medium of art," she writes. Beginning her career as a nurse, Marcia later studied art under nationally known artists such as Wolf Kahn, Albert Handel, Doug Dawson, and Lorenzo Chaves as well as courses at KU and Johnson County Community College. She is influenced by Wayne Thiebaud, Mary Cassatt, and the legacy of her mother, artist, Pat Potucek. Streepy's work is in the New York Art Center, Emprise Bank of Wichita, KS, and in many private collections around the globe as far as Sweden, New York, and Japan. She is a member of the MidAmerica Pastel Society and the Kansas City Artist Coalition. She has exhibited and won numerous awards in various national and international juried art exhibitions for over twenty-five years; she is married and has two grown daughters.
