Marie Decosta is an artist.....She has, over the years developed an edgy style,
with bright colors and subjects. While I like her flowers, and landscapes, she has developed a following in Florida for her pictures of Surf, Surfers and all things Floridian, which is why I sent some examples of her work to Linda of Lime in the Coconut! Linda loved the Floridian side of Marie's art so we are blogging together... Who Better???? She is doing the beachy stuff and me the flowers etc......See here at http://www.coconutsandlimes.blogspot.com/
Living in Florida for recent years Marie has tackled different venues,
This example called Tiffany's Garden seems like one of their glass artworks......
The use of bold color in her art makes her style unique and noticeable. This is Peacock Blues. She has
exhibited in Museums, Galleries, Banks and now has reproductions available.
Timothy Leary's Melting Electric Garden ( sold ) RATS! Marie has studied under William Greet of Cambridge England and Peter Ceretta of NYC and Fla.

This is sold but I love the dripping flowers.......

Sweet "New Kitty"..
LOVE him! Her????
I know that she loved Georgia O'Keefe's work too.... It's not in her bio. The reason I know is that I have seen some of her early work. VERY EARLY.... It showed talent and potential.
I know, because she is my sister...... I am very proud of her accomplishments. To investigate Marie's work further go to http://www.marie-decosta.artistwebsites.com/ She is represented by http://www.anartaffairgallery.com/
