Award-winning artist, Margie Florini, works with unusual skill in many mediums. Florini’s unique cut-paper collages and oil paintings are consciously executed to 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." -Pam Tully Price for North Shore Living.
I am an artist and owner of the working studio/gallery, Beach Street Studios on Boston’s North Shore. Since 1999, I have run this successful business, with my two partners, complete with client relations, marketing, web sites, accounting, press releases and promotions, while continuing to improve my skills as an artist.
Art organizations like The North Shore Arts Association and Cambridge Art Association, as well as The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, help me to continually grow in my knowledge, experience, and dedication to the arts.
My life as an artist is rich and fun. The design, the creative process, the feel and smell of the mediums in the studio all combine in my daily joy. It is thrilling to hear clients’ reactions to my paintings and fulfilling to see them united in a sale.
