B. St. Marie Nelson
Gray, Maine
~

"I paint primarily with oil on panel, and my process is one that explores composition and natural light. My recent work has focused on books as artistic objects, with a nod to the authors who write them. While most people think of the essential message found in a particular book, my work goes beyond that. I see that a beautifully bound book, even if worn and old, can become an artistic object by itself. In this way, I see that books can possess qualities beyond their text. They have the power to educate, delight and motivate. Reading a book like viewing art, allows us a greater understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

"My painting often takes me beyond the walls of the gallery and into the community. Not only has my work permitted a wonderful exchange of ideas with the viewer, but it has also become a tool to promote literacy. It is now what moves me forward and shapes my art.

"I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from the State University of New York. I am currently a member of the National Association of Women Artists. I have exhibited throughout the U.S. and have paintings in both private and public collections."
