An Introduction
Marie-Luise Vaughn, professional award-winning fine artist, specializing in abstract expressionism,  born and raised in northern Germany.
I studied art in Germany during the 1980's, focussing on watercolor, charcoal, pencil and portaits.  Over the years I have discovered that creating vibrant, bold, colorful abstract paintings is where my heart is.  My true passion!  
Although I do have a great appreciation for working with the warmth of earth tones that have a more calming effect.
