One of Marsha's art instructors once described her
as a 'rim walker'.
She loves to balance on the rim between the abstact
and real worlds. Her work is romantic and free-spirited reflecting
her passion for people, places, pets and nature. Infatuation with
colour, line and texture are revealed in the design of her work.
Since childhood she has enjoyed drawing, painting and doodling.
During secondary school in Ottawa and at university in Kingston
at Queen's she studied art. Throughout her career as an elenentary
school teacher she enjoyed encouraging her student's artistic talents.
She frequently used her summer vacations to attend art courses ffrom
numerous locally and
internationally recognized artists.
Retired since January 2002 she is now focussing on her artistic
interests and has enjoyed several successful shows in Kingston and
area. Marsha says she is "finally getting to do what she really
wanted to do when she grew up!"
