Originally from the rolling hills of Chester County, Pa. , Maryanne Jacobsen sold her thriving West Chester dance school in the late 1990's, and subsequently moved to Florida. It was there that Maryanne finally had the opportunity to indulge in a childhood dream to become a visual artist. With color the motivating factor in her desire to paint, she picked up a palette knife and the magic of creation began! The love affair is still in high gear over a decade later, and Maryanne feels truly blessed to have found one more passion in a life that has been filled with many artistic accomplishments.

A colorist and contemporary impressionist, over the past years Maryanne has been juried into many local and prestigious national shows including among others the American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists and NOAPS Best of America exhibits. She has won many awards and has been juried into many plein air events as well. She is collected both nationally and abroad and corporate collectors include The Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida. Although primarily self-taught, she has taken workshops from artists across the country that she most admires including Robert Liberace, David Leffel, Clayton Beck, Kenn Backhaus and Kim English. Influences include the famous colorists, Henry Hensche and Charles Hawthorne, as well as the great Russian Impressionists, Fechin, Bongart and others.
Maryanne is represented by galleries throughout the United States including Station Gallery in Wilmington, Delaware, Palm Ave. Fine Art in Sarasota, Fl. ,Gallery 444 in Union Square, San Francisco, Stakenborg-Greenberg Gallery in Sarasota, Fl, Gallery Vibe in Naples, Fl., and Collector’s Gallery in Venice, Fl.
