Marjorie paints traditional subject matter with a fresh eye. She captures the timeless beauty of the moment with her colors and textures. Painting from life, she uses the richness of oil paint to convey the mood and sense of place. Her style is influenced by Impressionism and Classical Realism. She shares her enthusiasm for creating art with her students at The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Studio School where she has been teaching Studio Art since the 1980s.
Marjorie graduated with honors from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, she also studied at Art Students League of New York and Virginia Commonwealth University and has studied privately with Cedric and Joanette Egeli. She has received several awards over the years for figurative and landscape painting as well as two fellowships to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Her most recent awards include First Place at Gloucester Arts Festival, Community Artist 2.5 Plein Air Competition 2019 in Gloucester, Virginia and Third Place in Plein Air Westhampton 2019 in Richmond, Virginia. She has also received two fellowships to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.
Marjorie sells out of her studio as well as through galleries. Her work has been exhibited in galleries up and down the East Coast and she has new works currently on display at Crossroads Art Center in Richmond, VA.
Her work is included in numerous private and corporate collections in Richmond, Virginia including The Governor's Mansion, Media General, The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, C.S.X. Corporation, E.R. Carpenter Corp., The Medical College of Virginia, Henrico Doctor’s Hospital and Mutual Assurance.
