About Marie Witte

Marie Witte As a young child in Patras, Greece, Marie Witte, then known as Maria Panoutsopoulou, could frequently be found drawing in the fine dirt of the walled yard of her foster home. After her adoption at five years old by an American family, Marie carried her nascent love of art to her new country, now drawing on the sandy beaches of San Diego.

As a young adult, Marie studied Art and Psychology at San Diego State University receiving a BA with honors. As an Art History graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, she focused on the Dutch Renaissance.

While painting portraits on commission, Marie also sold paintings at galleries throughout America. Some of Marie's early work continues in the tradition of the sixteenth century Flemish painters, with a luxurious use of muted earth tones, while later works speak of 19th century French and American impressionists, containing the same elements of playful, spontaneous brush strokes in individuated, surprising colors. The sparkling movement of the oceans, the free intensity of the spirit of a child, and the shy beauty of a rural landscape are among the frequented subjects of her work. For the past decade, Marie has developed her oil paintings so that the essential, spiritual nature of her subject is captured by a vibrancy of color and an insightful rendering of light. She continues to paint daily from her current residence in northern Vermont.

Marie Witte's oil paintings are in collections worldwide.
