The Art of Roni Marsh

Roni Marsh is a Master Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Oregon and a Signature Member of the Northwest Pastel Society and the Sierra Pastel Society. She also holds a membership with the Pastel Society of the West Coast and the Oil Painters of America. Her work has won numerous awards on both National and International levels.

RoniThe daughter of an artist, Roni learned a deep love and reverence for the natural world from her father. Her early childhood years were spent in Quincy, a tiny town in Northern California. Her teen and college years were spent in Southern California and during this time, she won many awards and scholarships for her art.

A resident of Medford, Oregon, Roni works “Plein Air” as often as possible. She finds the urgency of capturing the fleeting effects of light both demanding and exhilarating. Whether of Pacific Northwest grandeur, powerful Coastal views or Southwestern serenity, she strives to allow the resulting spontaneity to come through in all her paintings.

Roni teaches pastel and oil painting classes and workshops in both Oregon and Northern California. She also teaches on-going Landscape and Still Life classes and workshops in Drawing, Pastel and Oil Painting. The classes cover materials, colors, surfaces, value and commitment. Her classes are currently in Medford & Grants Pass. For information on classes or workshops contact her at (541) 944-8734 or by email.

Her work is currently represented by the Rogue Gallery in Medford and the Adelante! Gallery in Ashland, Oregon.

Artist's Statement:
“I enjoy what I call ‘playful paradoxes’ in life. In many of my paintings, I contrast the fierce severity of nature against her gentle persistence. At other times I like to paint her in quiet repose.”
