Marguerite Robichaux: Mountains to the Sea

RESIDES: Stratton, Maine 


BORN: 1950 Huntsville, Alabama

Marguerite Robichaux lives in the woods of Maine where her studio lies in the shadow of the Bigelow Mountain Range - one of her favorite subjects. When she travels it is always with a set of watercolors or a French easel, and she spends part of each year painting in a small studio in southern Louisiana where she grew up. She received her M.F.A. from Louisiana State University and first came to Maine as a student, eventually settling in the western mountains. Her work is included in the collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Portland Museum of Art, the Farnsworth Museum, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, Colby and Bates Colleges, and many private and corporate collections
