March’s paintings and pastels are colorful and expressionistic, reflecting our perception of and interaction with favorite places and subject matter; in the context of physical places, emotional states of mind, or a point in time that we cherish from our own, unique, individual journey that we all make on this earth.
Her paintings express self-awareness, personal and community accountability, the beauty of nature and the complex relationships between humans and the natural world.
She works in several different series of artworks, different themes (tropical, sea life, cactus, abstracts, Nordic landscapes, hill country, abstracts, animals and Austin night skyline cityscapes). Her tropical and sea life paintings have been inspired by her travels to Hawaii, Cancun and Port Aransas,Texas. Her mountain and hills paintings and pastels reflect her visual experience of living in Norway and subsequent visits there, as well as living in the Texas Hill Country.
March became aware of her interest in art at an early age, and began drawing and painting as soon as she could pick up a pencil and paintbrush. She attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with concentration in Studio Art/Painting and Drawing. March works in a variety of media: oils or acrylics on canvas, charcoal, graphite, oil pastels and chalk pastels. She also attended the Oslo International Summer School in Oslo, Norway, with studies in Norwegian art history and Norwegian studio art.
