Davis, CA- February 9, 2015 – UC Davis Craft Center Gallery presents “Distinctive Angles,” the solo exhibition of Drawing & Painting instructor, Marieke DeWaard, February 9 – March 13 at the gallery 530-752-1475.
Marieke did her formal art training in the Netherlands, supplemented by a Master's degree in Art Education from Kutztown University, Pa. She focuses on form and composition, which is driven by her interest in architecture and nature. Working from her own photographs and often incorporating found objects, Marieke’s architectural oriented work reflects the building style of the country in which she resides.
Having lived in many countries including France, Singapore, Indonesia and Japan, Marieke’s work captures a wide variety of cultures, yet retains a signature style founded in spatial relationships and well-balanced compositions.
Many individuals as well as companies, galleries and museums have purchased Marieke's pieces. Marieke has taught at many schools, including the prestigious Glassell School of Art in Houston. She now resides in Davis, California, where she teaches at the UC Davis Craft Center.
