Marian Nixon

Marian Nixon is an artist/designer working out of Chicago, IL. Having been in the surface design/licensing world since the late 1990s (we’re talking pre-jpegs), this is her 2nd time exhibiting at Blueprint. Her roots are in watercolors, but when the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil came to town, the world changed. OK, the world didn’t change, but her creativity exploded. Although you’ll still find the hand-painted pieces in her collection, you’ll also see lots of mixed media – she incorporates textures, especially wood, and photographs into her work, and she never met a metallic that didn’t feel at home in her patterns. Others call Marian’s work “whimsical”, but she prefers “playfully sophisticated”. Her patterns are available for license and sale.
