Click here for a full size picture I have worked as an artist since 1985. I create works in acrylics, oils, pastels, watercolours, pen and ink, coloured pencil, clay, air brush, house paint, what ever I can get my hands in. I have loved art all my life, from the time I first drew on my mom's living room wall, throughout school and especially in my seventh grade algebra class. My teacher used to come by my desk and voice her disdain, "This is why you are failing algebra Marsha, because all you ever do is sit here and draw pictures." Well what a tragedy! Algebra never empowered me to express my emotion, heart, or vision and it certainly never made me a dime, art on the other hand..... I won't bore you with all the technical stuff, where I have exhibited work and held shows etc.... If you're interested, ask. I will tell you that I have traveled extensively and lived many places, including California, Washington state and Alaska. I take my camera when I travel as I never know when a painting or sculpture will call my name. Every work I produce has a story. Many pieces are born of pain, some of joy, others of injustice. I have never been one to paint pieces that "match the drapes" or say nothing. I invite you to explore and enjoy!

This site has some samples of my work and important information about Native American Issues.
