My work is about my passion for painting. It is about the joy of color, color placement, and color relationships. It is about light and light effects, reflection and introspection, forms and patterns, as well as the play of textures and energy.
My inspiration comes from the endless beauty of the natural world and from meditation. It is my hope that my work speaks to the viewer, allowing deeper connections and positive emotional reactions to the usage of the elements at play in each piece.
Marcia, a native of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, began painting lessons as a shy yet spirited child studying in Provincetown, Ma. with Henry Hensche as well as with visiting impressionist painters to his school. She later studied at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure Des Beaux Arts in Paris, France, The Art Institute Boston, and Boston University. Marcia is also a former student of Lois Griffel at The Cape Cod School of Art, Wolf Kahn at the Santa Fe Institute of Fine Arts, and Janet Fish in NYC. She worked as an arts educator in both public and private education. Now retired, Marcia continues to facilitate painting workshops in the US and abroad, taking painters to Tuscany once a year while also working full time in the studio at 450 Harrison Ave., Studio #408 and in her home studio in Norfolk, MA. Her work has been seen in galleries, in numerous exhibits, has won awards and appeared in publications, and is in many private collections.
