Marti Higgins is a Cleveland based artist, with a focus in the abstract of nature.
WHO IS THE ARTIST
I work primarily as a painter, but also create collages and encaustics, (wax paintings). My daily walks in nature, where I observe both subtle and dramatic changes in the areas I frequent, inform both my impressionistic landscapes and my abstract work. The changes are caused by the time of day, precipitation, animals, weather, the cycle of the seasons and also people. I find patterns and compositions in both the large view as well as the smaller more intimate picture. I use photographs and photo editing applications to help me establish a composition; then move away from the reference to work more abstractly and impressionistically. Spending time outdoors has greatly increased my visual perception and has provided countless inspirations for my art.
Ms. Higgins’ art is held in many local and regional collections including PNC Bank, Dollar Bank, Cuyahoga County Administration Building, Metro Health Hospital, Southwest General Hospital, Nordson Corporation, Flour Restaurant, The Glidden House as well as private collections.
