Oil & mixed media paintings inspired by daily life...

Mary Catherine Starr is a painter, yoga instructor, and yoga studio director living and working in Arlington, VA. Her work depicts that which she is surrounded by in her daily life--women in yoga poses, clothing on hangers, household items, and girly accessories. She is primarily an oil painter, but has recently been dabbling in mixed media, watercolor, and acrylics. Her work typically contains bold colors, an interest in light and shadows, and often, whimsical subject matter displayed in a unique way. She is inspired by a love of daily life and an appreciation for the present moment.

Artomatic 2012

My Artomatic 2012 exhibit contains a little bit of everything. Because I have spent the last year or so in a somewhat experimental phase as an artist, I've brought in a wide variety of pieces that show the various subject matter (yoga, clothing, and household objects) and materials (oil, acrylic, and mixed media) that I've been working with over the past 12 months or so. If you have an interest in somewhat girly, colorful paintings depicting dresses on hangers, accessories, women doing yoga, and household objects, then hopefully you'll find my work fun to look at. Part whimsy, part serious subjects in oil, it's a small snapshot of who I am as a person, and what my daily life is like. Enjoy!

I'm located on the 2nd floor in space 169. Directions: Get off of the elevator head away from the utility sink/freight elevator (or towards the Men's restroom). Take a right into the big room off of the corridor, and then take a left. Walk all the way down to the end of the large room, and my space will be on the right--in a little nook by the window. Thanks for visiting!
