A Little Background....

Marsha was born in Tenafly, NJ on January 23, 1945 (01/23/45 for those numerology aficionados). As unique as her birth date, was her desire to be a visual artist. It became a focus for her life from the day she could hold a crayon…or grab a handful of mud.

She was so directed that she only applied to the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence (noted by many as the finest art college in the world). RISD agreed and provided the base and the tools for what Marsha does today. She graduated in 1966 with a B.F.A. in Painting. From there she entered the Royal College of Art in London as the only accepted American graduate student. Her paintings were well received and found their way into one artist and group shows in the UK, and in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the US. The paintings have won a number of awards.

 

Since Marsha also learned to love clay as a medium while taking courses at RISD, she decided to experiement with her color and design sense - how it could be combined with the craft of wheel throwing to create objects that could be both useful as well as pieces of art in themselves. During that time Marsha developed many unique glazes and application techniques. She likes to think of her creations as "one-of-a-kind, three-dimensional, functional canvases." Her functional and decorative-ware, and mosaics are part of private collections world-wide.
