About the Artist

Mara Safransky studied fine art at Rhode Island School of Design. Strongly influenced by the work of the "Abstract Expressionists":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstract_expressionists, she uses color, shape, and movement to liberate viewers' analytic sensibilities and instead engage them in a subjective, freely associative experience.

Safransky works from her studio in Portland, Oregon. She is a member of Oregon Society of Artists and Women Painters West. Her work is held in private collections and was most recently on view at the Brenda Taylor Gallery in New York City.
