Welcome to Courtney Marchesi Art! As you can see, I have quite an affinity for the ocean. It’s beauty and mystery are a huge inspiration to me. The delicate fragility yet fiercely powerful waters stir a creativity in me that I can only explain with a brush in hand.
Most of my work consists of acrylic paintings showcasing aquatic life on wood. Most of the wood I paint on is reclaimed or found pieces that are locally sourced near my hometown of Philomath, Oregon.
More recently, I have added watercolor-style coffee paintings to my repertoire. The idea of combining my love for the sea and my love for a good cup of coffee seemed like an obvious decision. It has been a fun, new concept for me that I am still experimenting with and developing.
