I'm Beki, the artist behind Beki Marquardt LLC. My work is often inspired by the things I am passionate about, with allowing myself to explore uncharted territory. This can include many inspirations; however I seem to gravitate toward the structure side of architecture, the history behind the works of great designers, all things nature and self expression (of course the client also when it comes to clientele work :)). I absolutely love design and art. Pretty sure it flows through my soul at all times, thinking about it nonstop and appreciating it all moments. I appreciate beautiful aesthetics and good design. My mind works by breaking down the elements of what I see into the smallest details. I imagine what the next step would be and visualize it into place. Following the contour of each subject. Honestly, I can just sit in front of what I am currently working on, get comfy and just stare at it. There has been times where I will leave a piece of work up in my studio and as I walk past I take the time to just finish it in my mind, until the time comes to quick grab the right tools and make a move. My mind tends to not want to slow down. I have a sketch line work style to all my forms of art and an functionality, artistic approach to design. My art style is inspired from the theory we all start with a line. Everything in this world of form is a silhouette. I want to highlight that. I gravitate towards bright hues which represent energy. Every living form has energy in which they leave trails of and share with each other. We are all in this together! :))
Graphic art prints have found me and I am in love with this form of expression. Like I said before; I’m obsessed with architecture, interior design eras, furniture, art history....all things art and design. I can’t control it hahah. Having a lifetime of continuous learning in these fields, plus personal growth, loved ones and all that good stuff. Sounds like a dream come true. Graphic art prints allow me to bring art into play while educating myself more and letting me practice with inspired stylistic pieces.
I am educated in the field of art an interior design. Being an interior designer also allows me to play creatively. Varying styles with creating optimal experiences for the client is just as engaging as art. Another wonderful way to continuously educate myself in the history of design, while being able to share my expertise with the client. Making the most out of your space is extremely important. Psychologically there is a difference when you are in an environment that you like, brought by functionality and good design. We all deserve spaces we love!
Outside of my passions, I am a simple, swim loving, high energy soul, who is always up for new adventures and traveling. My family and friends are awesome, music is wonderful and laughing is a top choice. Taking time to read, meditate, and be in nature is a must. Playing cards/games with awesome people should fall under that must category, too. Just that good ole genuine time spent with loved ones. Movies are a guilty pleasure and the night is the best time of the day. On the tech level there is nothing like Nintendo, Adobe, Google and Apple. I was lucky enough to try out and collect many of the glorious creations from Nintendo through its beginnings and learn adobe in its younger years through out my early schooling into college life and after. Wow have they grown. These companies amaze me on their design and continuous genius. I’m a pretty down to earth person, that is always working on growth, trying to reach my best self in the time that we are gifted in our lifetimes. I believe we can all win! That doesn't mean I’m not competitive. Hahah. I’m not going to let you win, that spot has to be earned hahah. See competitive. Lol. Most importantly, we are all just as good as each other and I’m always down to celebrate with you!
I have a universal approach to spirituality. With in that I believe we are all connected through energy that’s shared though out everything. We should treat each other how we wish to be treated. I believe in spirit guides, in fact mine are pretty awesome. Yours probably are too. I think journaling and meditating is a great way to look with in and that we are all important and make a difference.
Always open to new opportunities, meeting new people and wishing everyone their best damn life! Hey I appreciate you taking the time to look into me and my work. Big Thanks!
