Marian Strangfeld graduated from Rutgers University with a BA in Studio Art, and from Cambridge College with a M.Ed in Art Education. She studied painting in the MFA program at UMass Amherst, as well as in various workshops and classes at other art institutions. 
Her interest in art and education led to a career as high school Studio Art teacher and K-12 Art Director in Hopkinton MA. Under her leadership, Hopkinton High School was named a School of Excellence in the Arts, and represented Massachusetts in the Kennedy Center Creative Schools of Distinction competition. While teaching in Hopkinton, she also served on the Educators Advisory Board for the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
  In her own work, Marian explores the atmosphere and mood of the landscape. Her style is influenced by traditions of Asian Art, evident in her abstracted compositions and calligraphic brushwork. Her paintings have been recognized in exhibits at the Yosemite National Park Museum, Cape Cod Museum of Art , Danforth Museum, Newton Open Studios,  and the Beacon Hill Art Walk, earning numerous Juror awards, and other honors. Marian's work is exhibited at the Chatham Creative Arts Center, in Chatham, MA, where she is a member of the faculty, teaching both Painting 101 and Sumi-e ink painting.
