Biography and Exhibitions
Marjorie has studied fine art since she was 12.
She has a BA with a major in Applied Art and Art History from Willamette University. She also studied at San Francisco State University, Academy of Art San Francisco and with Stanford University in Venice Italy.
After years of study, she now creates her own style, pushing the envelope of innovation to make new sensations for the eye of the beholder. Creating different series keeps her imagination renewed.
Her paintings have been in exhibits throughout the western United States, New York and Florence, Italy where she won the recognition of the international jury. That exhibition is a part of the United Nations' programs. Her environmental paintings in video was shown in Granada and Almeria Spain.
She was director of a highly successful after school art program for migrant farm laborer's children in Tracy, California. She now teaches workshops and gives private lessons.
Her work is in private collections from Hawaii to Maryland, and in corporate offices with shows at Syntex and Synopsis in California. Collectors come back repeatedly for new work or to commission special pieces. .
