Marne Meynig

Now living in Sunset, Louisiana, Meynig grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast where he spent every summer at the beach, drawing and painting.  Essentially self-taught, he has been inspired to paint his entire life by “nearby landscape, birds and sunlight”.

An acrylic painter, his art has a freshness and immediacy, a light-handed translation of Southwest Louisiana landscape. “I focus on the wildlife, marshes, swamps and the colorful people and towns.  I try to capture the beauty of everyday life that is around me and share it through my art.” Lately, he has been exploring a brighter color palette, which makes his paintings “pop”.
