Marie Williams Studio
I have always had an innate desire to create art. As a young child I dabbled in drawing, however, I was too timid to work with paint. Therefore, I continued to work with graphite as my sole medium. Although drawing was an instinctive joy for me, I too k time away from sketching to raise a family for twenty-five years. Subsequently, I enrolled in college to further my artistic skills. I am delighted to say that one of my most enjoyable courses was oil painting. While drawing with graphite was a passion for me, I was enthralled with the unique differences oil painting had to offer. In addition to my degree in Fine Arts, I have been developing my skills with a self-tutelage method. I am fascinated with all genres of art; however, my one true passion is portraits.

Josh Haines, along with friends Sean Yager and Amy Applegate, founded the studio space shortly after their college careers. Originally, it was just a small section of the old warehouse that the three rented. After enough demand from other artists, they decided to rent out the rest, working on fixing it up along the way and establishing a gallery. At the end of 2017, The Oilwick officially became a nonprofit with a mission to serve the artists of Indianapolis and enhance the art scene as well.
Our primary objective is keeping a low cost studio space and maintaining regular exhibitions in our gallery. In 2018, we started a handful of programs like artist meetups, critiques, classes, and figure drawing as well.
