Marian S Adcock -

Marian S Adcock is primarily a botanical artist, but is also a skilled animal portraitist and landscape artist. Her medium is wax and oil-based colored pencil on premium archival quality vellum surface artists' paper.
Marian derives inspiration for her botanical artwork by carefully observing the numerous brightly colored flowers amongst the plantain lilies (Hosta genus) in the gardens surrounding her Stonebridge Gardens Art Studio in Saint Paul, MN. She also visits gardens throughout the Upper Midwest for inspiration. Marian's artwork continues the ancient traditions botanical artists have used over the centuries to depict plant life. She continues the tradition of combining artistic sensitivity with scientific accuracy when she paints plants' vibrant colors, and intricate, fleeting and fragile structures. Her artwork also follows the traditions of presenting botanical artwork on either a white background or in situ.
