The Artist & Studio
Get to know Jordan
Jordan Marx Sprague is the live event artist behind Marx Studio. Art has always been a massive part of Jordan’s identity, and when it came time to continue her education in college she pursued further training at Savannah College of Art and Design. After gaining all of the knowledge and skills necessary at SCAD, Jordan transitioned to live painting as a career, and she admits that it has opened up a whole new world of meeting other creatives. She says, “From the clients to the photographer, floral designers, and so forth there is a constant influx of inspiration and passion for what we do. The creative talents I work alongside constantly push me to greater heights in my own work, but more importantly have become a close community of friends.” Art is a connector for many people, and Jordan and art have a similar relationship as it helps her to build relationships with people too.
“People and places constantly flood me with inspiration and the need to interpret and convey it onto a canvas. Art is the most important form of storytelling to me. It crosses all boundaries and has no barriers,” Jordan beautifully states. You can tell that Jordan is truly passionate about what she does, and how she creates. She believes that intuition is an important aspect of painting. For her it’s intuition that keeps the energy and inspiration going from one project to the next. That is why an artist of any form is unique- because you are trusting in their vision and perspective in capturing a time and place in history. Jordan, or Marx Studio, indeed captures an event beautifully. Marx Studio has found the magic somewhere.

Every day is different for Marx Studio, and Jordan really appreciates that about what she does. Daily she gets to decide where she wants to set up studio and paint. Though she has a home studio, oftentimes her imagination and inspiration will lead her somewhere else. Typically during the week she spends time refining the event paintings for the weekend prior or working on commissioned pieces. The weekends are spent traveling wherever her art takes her.
The goals for Marx Studio are big, but so is the future.
Jordan is hopeful to have art shows throughout the year at galleries. But most significantly, Jordan envisions live event painting taking her to new places across the country and world. “I want to be the best and top artist requested for live event paintings,” states Jordan. She will follow wherever her paintbrush takes her.
