Whatever she paints, Wagner’s primary focus is always “the light” and how it affects the scene she is trying to capture. A devoted plein air artist, painting yearly in Italy and in Plein Air festivals around the US, Wagner was recently named a Master Pastelist by the Pastel Society of America; her work is seen frequently in Pastel Journal. Fine Art Connoisseur magazine has highlighted her pastels and in 2016, her pastel painting appeared on the cover of PleinAir magazine. In 2016 and 2017 she was on the faculty of the Plein Air Convention. Wagner is a life-long Michigander with a BFA from The University of Michigan School of Art.
