1st Place – Marie Dancy-Brennan – “Christmas Season”
Marie Dancy-Brennan is an artist living and creating in San Diego, California. Marie expresses the following about her art, “Art is the outward expression of inner vision. It opens the mind to endless possibilities as an expression of our untapped, unexpressed and even unexpected emotions. My artwork is an exploration of line, color and shapes. Sometimes I create paintings, sometimes I prefer taking photographs and finally, sometimes I create a digital manipulation of both mediums.”
Marie has a graphic arts degree from San Diego State University and she has been involved in the art community, painting, teaching, and selling her art for almost 40 years. Marie states this about her art career, “The opportunity to show my art work on line offers exposure to a vast new audience, and it is a wonderful new outlet where I have found new success. To me, art is about exploring my inner world, using line, shape, color and shadow and is a continuing adventure for me.” http://www.zhibit.org/mdbrennan
