The storytelling aspect of a great illustration has always absorbed Marcia’s creative process: The challenge of capturing a narrative in a single frame; the tiny pause as the storyteller inhales; the snapshot instant that tells it all. Originally trained as a medical illustrator, she has spent the beginning of her art career focusing on the accurate, crafting exact scientific illustrations. As a ‘pencil-for-hire, much of her work lies within the published pages of medical journals and text books. Eventually, Marcia transitioned to freelancing, which opened up her subject matter and artistic direction. Though her genre still lies in the more realistic/representational style, lately she has been exploring a more expressive media; printmaking. Each hand-pulled print is a unique original; no two prints ever come out the same. Pulling a print is a lot like opening a present. The image is always a unique surprise. For fun and giggles (and more consistant paycheck), Marcia currently teaches design and visual communications at Cold Hollow Career Center in Enosburg Falls, VT.
