About the artist

Margie RigneyMargie Miller Rigney

“In art, there are no mistakes. Even failure can be beautiful.”

Local Artist, Kentucky native and active member of the Anderson County Arts Council, Margie M. Rigney currently resides in Scott County, Kentucky.

A former Newspaper columnist and gallery owner, Margie has been painting professionally for over seven years. Her work varies from charcoal portraits and livestock work to era-specific Sepia's and plein air Oil landscapes. India ink is often added to finished work and large-scale abstracts are also products of her color rich palette.

Her public works include large scale, Irish inspired Sepia's at Slainte Public House in Georgetown, Kentucky; a 48 square foot work at the Scott County Public Library titled: Blue Heron and Cattails; Portrait works at Blue Stallion Brewing and Rooster Brewing; A Yuko-en Garden landscape painting also resides at the Scott County Department of Tourism.

Inspired by the richly colored landscapes of the Bluegrass region and it's people and as a lover of Nature and the outdoors, you may find her painting along the creek side, trail side or tucked inside a local vineyard; happily enjoying the vivid and brilliant colors of the ever changing Kentucky seasons, and completely at home.
