ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Marguerite Anglin is a self taught artist based in Philadelphia, PA. Trained as an architect, she realized she had a talent for painting when she stepped out in faith to try something new. Inspired by the view from her apartment window one day, she attempted to paint the sun shining through a cloudy sky. That day an artist was born. Although she had never painted in front of anyone before, she felt led to take her easel and brushes on the road. She created most of her early paintings live, in front of public gatherings at church, worship or conference settings.
During a season where she had taken a break from painting, what Marguerite thought would be just a couple months of downtime turned into nearly two years of "artist's block". After seeing an online video of an artist using brushes in both hands as if they were extensions of her fingers, Marguerite was captivated by the idea of using just her own hands and fingers to paint. She decided to try finger painting.... Her creative juices began flowing once again... and she was hooked.
Marguerite now prefers painting primarily with her fingers instead of brushes, and her work has become more abstract. She creates "skyscapes" and impressionist images that emanate light and evoke a sense of wonder, hope and soaring freedom. Her work is both spiritual and inspired by nature, showing the beauty of creation reflecting its Creator. She is currently working on her new finger painting collection called "Above the Clouds," a series of atmospheric, abstract paintings that prove even the clouds have stories to tell.
In addition to painting, Marguerite has a passion to unlock creativity in others and help people find what inspires them. She hosts workshops and social painting events that encourage participants to return to their first love- Creativity!
