Marie Davis Samohod is a local Springfield artist that paints colorful, expressive acrylic paintings and watercolors.  Her work incorporates vibrant colors, expressive lines, and layers of texture. Her recent paintings draw inspiration from nature, life events, memories and places. They express themes of both joy, and solitude. “As I paint I make both cognitive and instinctual choices that reveal what is there and what is hidden and I also allow freedom with my materials to help create inner pictures and not necessarily a realistic portrayal.”

Marie has exhibited her paintings in juried group shows at Cerulean Art Gallery, Wayne Art Center, Community Art Center, Main Line Art Center, The Philadelphia Sketch Club, The Plastic Club, Woodmere Museum , the Fellowship shows at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Connelly Center,  Philadelphia Water Color Society, Chester County Art Association and Delaware County Community College Art Gallery. She has also had solo shows at The Art Institute of Philadelphia, The Darlington Art Center, Neumann University, the former Z Gallery, and two Main Line First Friday Shows.

Marie has won awards in juried shows at the Philadelphia Sketch Club, The Plastic Club, Delaware County Community College, Chester County Art Association, and from the Fellowship of The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her work is included in corporate, college and numerous private collections.

Marie Davis Samohod is also a graduate of The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she studied painting, and Neumann University where she studied education. Marie taught children for 24 years and has been painting for over 40 years. She continues to attend workshops to improve her craft and is a member of many art clubs and associations. Marie paints from her studio in Springfield and also plein air sites. She has had several Open Studio Events.
