Marney Fuller lives in Brooklyn, NY. Her studio is located in DUMBO. She grew up in Southern California and Seattle, WA. She received a BA from Western Washington University and an MFA from Pratt Institute. Marney’s art is about fleeting habitat and changing boundaries.
My paintings are emotive environments. The paint application allows an organic abstraction of the imagery.
I am the owner/director of Art Workshop Experience (AWE). I teach art to young artists (9-18). I began teaching in my studio about 12 years ago when my son was in elementary school. I realized that there wasn’t a place for young artists to thrive and express themselves. I try to provide that environment at AWE. It is very fulfilling when young artists arrive at that aha moment with their art. When they begin to understand why they even want to make art since it’s not always tangible. It’s a journey we choose to be on.
I have also been a resident/teaching artist at some of NYC’s public schools for many years. High school and elementary school students have helped me build some of my public art installations. The students get an opportunity to be part of the public art process and share with me the satisfaction and dialogue art creates in their community.
