MARCIA COPPEL

About Artist

Marcia Coppel was formally educated in art and speech therapy and is a keen observer of both verbal and non-verbal communication.  She attended George Washington University, Cornell University, the University of Wisconsin, and the Instituto of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Marcia began drawing as a way of recording her extensive travels in Mexico and the Greek Islands of Mykonos and Santorini.  Wanting to integrate her abstract painting style with her drawings, she moved from her native Washington, DC to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  While studying there with Dennis Pohl and Carolyn King, her expressionist realism developed and was inspired by the colors, texture, form and light of Mexico.

"Everything here (in Mexico) is visual.  Not just the flowers and the colors of nature.  There are little surprises around every corner, in doorways, niches, and above the buildings"  Marcia's light and playful use of color and line, combined with her innate sensitivity, humorously depicts the subtle nuances of being human in all of its joy and pathos.

After living in Mexico for almost five years, Marcia moved back to her residence and studio in Washington, DC.  She returns to San Miguel and Puerto Vallarta for several months every year; there she can be found painting in her studio or drawing in the cafes or on the beaches of Mexico.
