About The Leader
Marcio Correa’s landscapes and street scenes reflect both his love of travel and a fascination with local scenery. “I am deeply interested in nature, but also in the man-made world and the intersection of both. I prefer to paint on location, immersed in my subject’s atmosphere and light.” Marcio works in watercolor on paper and on alternative surfaces which can be framed without glass.
Marcio is a signature member and new President-elect of the Colorado Watercolor Society. His paintings are featured in local and national juried shows, and have won several awards.
Coming from a background in languages and literature, and some experience in commercial art, Marcio learned to paint mostly on his own and through workshops with renowned artists Alvaro Castagnet, Mark Mehaffey and Mel Stabin.
Marcio is Brazilian, but since 1996 has called Colorado home—it was in Boulder County that he met his wife, proposed to her in a painting, and they started a family together.
