Cover Artist: Maryanne Jacobsen

Summer Read, by Maryanne Jacobsen

Maryanne Jacobsen is a colorist and contemporary impressionist. She began painting in 2006 after an early retirement from a performing arts career allowed her the opportunity to indulge in a childhood dream to become a visual artist. With color the motivating factor in her desire to paint, she picked up a palette knife and the magic of creation began.

Over the past few years Maryanne has been juried into many local and national shows including the American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists, and the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society. She has won many awards including First Place and Best of Show, and also paints en plein air as often as possible. While frequently participating in juried plein air events, Maryanne is happiest in her own studio in sunny Florida, painting scenes from the places that she loves most. She is collected both nationally and abroad and recent corporate collectors include The Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida. Although primarily self-taught, she has taken workshops from artists that she most admires.

Maryanne is represented by galleries throughout the United States.To purchase or see more of her work, visit
