MARIANNE HORNBUCKLE, Santa Fe Painter and Sculptor  Evidencing early drawing and painting skills, Marianne Cooper Hornbuckle has pursued a life-long art path. Briefly sidetracked as a young adult by practicality, she chose a conventional life in Texas, but the artistic drive was too strong. Returning to watercolor painting in her early thirties, she gained national recognition quickly. With new husband. William Preston, a well-known New England watercolorist, she moved to New Mexico in 1983. As a full time professional artist, she has explored in turn watercolor and acrylic landscapes, oils, tinwork, monotypes, flower paintings, even Painted Ponies. Her painting has become abstract, influenced by study of Eastern philosophies; the drawing has emerged as figurative sculpture. She also does watercolor portraits. She is the widow of sumi-e painter William Preston. She maintains her home and gallery in Pojoaque, north of Santa Fe, where she represents herself and her own work, as well as his estate of sumi- and oil paintings, at Preston/Hornbuckle Fine Art. She is a proud and active member of Santa Fe Society of Artists, selling both paintings and sculpture directly to her collectors during the summer season.
