Marie Najera (b. 1964)
Marie Najera lives and works in San Diego CA. Painting professionally for over 22 years, Marie's work is developed as stories of her life, a visual diary overlaid with the influence of current inspirations. After a fire destroyed her studio in 2016, Marie's work transformed and abstracted as she built her portfolio again from scratch. Najera works without any preconceived notions about the finished piece, applying her mixed media materials freely. Her process follows the emotional fluctuations of her daily life, each layer a product of the varied facets of her inner being.
