Award-winning artist, Margie Florini, works with unusual skill in many mediums. Florini’s unique cut-paper collages, contemporary acrylics and traditional oil paintings present the viewer with a personal story, mood, and sensitivity that can only be “Florini”. Strong design is the foundation for each special piece.
“Clapboard houses, seaside gardens, and vintage cottages are her favorite subjects inspired by summers spent in Maine and on Cape Cod. Adirondack chairs, dories, and classic cars –’just the ones I’d like to have from the 40’s and 50’s’ – are characters in her colorful visual stories. A number of Florini’s pictures suggest moments of repose: a book left open on an armchair; a clothesline strung next to a salty old fishing boat; one illuminated window in an otherwise darkened farmhouse. She brings these quiet scenes vividly to life.”

For over 13 years with her business, Beach Street Studios, and now with the talented artist members of The Saltbox Gallery, Florini enjoys working in community. “To develop your technique, create work and find your voice as an artist is a very solitary life”, says Florini, “so now 25 years later, I try to educate and encourage others to look for unique opportunities to show/sell their work and, ultimately, find Success.”
