The Artist Says:

“Ripple Effect – A Tribute To Our Teachers”
We are all teachers and we are all students.
When we live our lives in full expression of our essence,
We send waves of inspiration vastly beyond our comprehension.
Our creative expression, in any form, is the language of our essence.
It is our life’s work as creative beings to master our own language.
Marjie Eakin-Petty


Artist’s Statement:
“The landscape of the American Southwest captivates my interest by providing endless sources of majestic painting subjects.  I enjoy the quiet beauty of time alone in the wild places still untouched by the modern world.  It is here in the stillness of nature that I have the multi-sensory experience of what I call “moments of profound beauty,” a sense of expanded awareness and opening to inspiration.   Then by capturing this moment through painting allows me to experience my own vastness and express it to the viewer.  The result of which is an invitation to enter this quiet untouched world and feel your own vastness.”
Artist's Bio:
Internationally and nationally awarded Colorado artist who grew up in California with the influence of an artistic family, Marjie’s academic studies majored in fine art and graphic design. Her first career was as a Graphic Designer and Art Director for an International Corporation Headquarters in San Francisco, where she specialized in the design of speaker support presentations. Upon leaving the corporate environment she continued her work in fine arts, freelance graphic design and illustration, while pursuing her interests in being of service in the healing arts where she came to develop her workshop series "Your Creative Journey - Through Pastel”.
