WV Artist on Display: Margy Green Creates Scenes from Realms.

Get to know WV artist Margy Green. She is a Greenbrier County native and creates scenes from worlds or realms inspired by her dreams, from her love and appreciation of nature, as nuanced by her myriad life experiences.  While most works are acrylic on canvas, other areas of her expertise and execution include pencil, charcoal, and oil pastel drawings, as well as watercolors, gouache, and oils.

Margy is on a constant path to learn and grow creatively…

She says she strives to create a visual reference for the miracles of our physical world in a way that evokes a feeling of wonder and respect for the planet, and for the universe that manifests our very existence.

Margy is on a constant path to learn and grow creatively and during her time spent living in southern and northern California, she embraced the many local and international cultural influences. She would apply these influences into her artwork, such as experimental and performance art, yoga and meditative practices. Her work has been exhibited in Southern California galleries, and is in many private collections and business. Learn more about Margy with our Q&A:

My art is an expression and creation that reflects my being.

Describe your art.

My art is an expression and creation that reflects my being. I’m not afraid to use color and my Illustration background influences my style.

How do you describe your palette?

Fresh and intense.

What inspired you to become an artist?

We had many illustrated classics in our home library and I remember being in awe of the art. My mother worked in pastels plus we had original art in our home by one her aunt’s who was an artist.

If I meditate or spend time exercising or enjoying nature, I can connect and be present in the moment and when I can do that, I can create art with ease.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

Overcoming the challenges of life and becoming a more grateful and joyful person in spite of it all.

What obstacles do you need to overcome to find your creative space/muse?

The obstacles are the same as for everyone. Mostly, we get in our own way.  If I meditate or spend time exercising or enjoying nature, I can connect be present in the moment and when I can do that, I can create art with ease.

How do you find your inspiration?

Inspiration is everywhere, and I either make a note of it or if I am among my artist tools to execute it, or sketch it. I also take way too many photographs to paint from.

Read up on artists you admire and learn the techniques they use.

What advice do you have for other artists?

Do what makes you happy. Stay true to yourself and create what you enjoy creating. Read up on artists you admire and learn the techniques they use. Apply what you learn and make art that is truly yours.

What is your favorite piece(s) of art you’ve made and why?

My most fulfilling moments in making art were drawing and painting from life. My favorite pieces of art are a pastel life drawing I did in college, and an oil portrait of my husband.
