About the Artist: As early as age twelve, Marcia Burtt knew she wanted to be a landscape painter. Fascinated with the outdoors, she tried to capture the allure of nature in her sketch book. In high school Burtt won a summer scholarship to the Otis Art Institute. She began college with a major in psychology, but halfway through the program she remembered her love of painting and graduated with a double major in art and psychology.
Burtt is a member of OAK, a group of painters dedicated to preserving the natural open spaces of California by capturing its essence in their art. Her vivid landscapes created en plein air combine vigorous brush strokes with an imaginative use of bright colors. While Burtt adds finishing touches in her studio, she tries not to change the freshness of what she has captured on location.
