Profile: Mary Nagel Klein
Artist Mary Nagel Klein paints still lives and landscapes in the most ancient of mediums—casein. She came to casein after working in both watercolor and oil and has immersed herself into understanding the characteristics that make it unique. Her paintings allow us a window into moments of her daily life—a tabletop bouquet, a walk down the path. But, look a little more deeply into each painting to see a vibrant complexity of color strokes hidden in the unassuming subjects and perhaps a bit of whimsy sharing the composition. It becomes apparent that the medium is the perfect choice for the expression.
