About Marie Bergman

I was Born in Alberta and raised in Santa Clara California and the Canadian Prairies.
I worked in several industries until fracturing my back in 1983. I then worked in the health care industry looking
after the Seniors. Fascinated by Robert Wood paintings when I was young; I new that someday I wanted to paint
landscapes just like him. That came to me later in life when I was soul searching for something new
and challenging in life. I went to the University of Saskathewan and bought my first painting supplies,
acrylic paints,and oil paints. I soon moved to Montreal and started experimenting with watercolor. I did not stay
long in Montreal and soon I moved to Victoria before reciding here in kelowna in 2009 where I now paint
fulltime. I am intrigued by the Hudson River School painters and the Pennsylvania impressionists.Richard Shmidt's new book lies openly around my house. Painting has opened doors for me and provided me with so much history and knowledge to learn from the early day and modern masters providing me with a large sandbox to play in so to speak.

ARTIST STATEMENT
My ecological surroundings are meaningful to me; and by using all of my senses I
gather together the elements of nature to sort and apply them by establishing my own style by brush and/or painting
knife.Expressing in oils, acrylic paints,and watercolor on a sound and lasting support. I ask myself - What is this place saying to me? I try to capture the inocense of which all elements in nature inhabitating that space and making them sing. This being color, temperature, light, shadow, movement and so.I like to choose a one and a half inch support (exhibition style) treating the sides as part of the painting.The ground on which I paint on is important to me not only making the painting strong to last but is a vital part of the painting.
