MEET MARA LIGHT
CONNECT WITH MARA
I was born in 1970 in New York. My artistic journey began early in life within the home. Creativity was always encouraged by my parents as they were artists themselves. I was often drawing and being creative in some form or another. I am grateful art was a respectable endeavor in my home life and family. In my high school years, I started to understand the extraordinary power art would have on my life. Art was a way to escape into my own world, a place where beauty and deep emotions had a voice. After high school, I completed my BFA in 1993 at the Art Center College of Design in California. The central theme of my paintings is the expression of the figure with a focus on the female form using light to reveal the mood or expression I would like to convey. I am constantly evolving and dedicated to creating paintings that remain fresh and speak to the viewer on many levels. My work is shown in galleries, charity events, and has been commissioned by dozens of private and public collectors. Most days I can be found painting in my studio and loving the struggle of life as an artist!
