Mardie Rees (b. 1980) is a fine artist and figurative sculptor who grew up in the Pacific Northwest. Born into a creative family, her childhood was spent building houses, sewing garments, drawing pictures, and visiting museums. When she was a teenager her family moved to Ecuador to facilitate community development; these years spent in a developing country broadened her worldview and became a definitive catalyst for her artistic growth.
Rees earned her BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design in 2003. In the years that have followed, she has created life-size bronze sculptures for museums, hospitals, schools, and collectors. She is represented by Nedra Matteucci Galleries in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Rees has won many accolades for her emotive sculpture. An Elected Member of National Sculpture Society, she is a two-time recipient of the Beverly Hoyt Robertson Memorial Award and a multiple award winner in Portrait Society of America’s International Competition & Exhibition.
