Marie Nagel-- Painting has been a passion for me all of my life. Starting as a child, I was always interested in drawing. In public school I was lucky to have as my teacher someone who was also a professional artist, who encouraged me to get some paints and start painting. At a time when girls were expected to become either a nurse, teacher or secretary, I was determined to go to art school, and I attended the Alberta College of Art in Calgary in the early sixties. Throughout my life painting has been my main interest. I love the feel of pushing paint around on canvas and I feel that painting is a way for me to say what I feel about everything, about life, my place in this universe, and how I feel about everything. I’ve worked mainly in the arts in my adult life, as a writer, photographer, commercial artist, director of a public art gallery, and from 1991 to 2007 I owned and operated a private gallery in Wells, BC, located near Barkerville. Since moving to Victoria in the latter part of 2007, I’ve been participating with two groups that paint out-of-doors or “en plein air” in the tradition of the Group of Seven and the Impressionists.
