Inspired by the landscapes, flora, and fauna of her native central Mississippi, Buttons Marchetti creates contemporary impressionistic oil paintings that captivate the eye with her unique use of shapes, color, and light. Her paintings take form in a color pallet that ranges from bright to soothing, whether it is in the form of a bird sitting on a tree limb, a field of flowers bathing in the sun, or the reflections of light on water. Buttons’ paintings tell a story or encourage you to revisit a memory.
Coloring, drawing, and painting were a favorite pastime of Buttons, an only child. Today, she loves everything about painting: from discovering new subject matter, to mixing new colors, and trying new styles of expression. Her greatest inspiration is from creation, and she expresses her interpretation of her Creator’s beauty by painting oil on canvas.
Buttons holds a BFA from The University of Mississippi. She has studied with Danie Green, John De la Vega, Mississippi artist Wyatt Waters, and plein air artist Camille Prezwodek.
Buttons resides in her native town of Jackson, Mississippi, which continues to inspire her art. She also teaches art in her studio. Buttons’ still life, landscape, bird and abstract paintings are held in private, corporate, and university collections, and are exhibited in galleries in Jackson, Mississippi, and throughout the Southeast.
