Marge grew up in NYC, dreaming from the time she was a young child of "being an artist and moving to Greenwich Village". No one in her family could figure out how she knew at age 5 about the budding artists haven of the Village, but they were certainly not surprised that Marge- the girl who would draw, paint, sculpt and even construct spaceships from packing boxes- wanted to be an artist. Through Marge never made it to the Village, she now resides in New York's other artist Haven, the Hudson Valley. She has been working on her own art for 38 years. She discovered plein air painting through the Wallkill River School. Working in the great outdoors has reawakened her creativity and now the sky's the limit.
Marge also sees herself as a modern day storyteller, using paint as her medium. In oils and watercolors, she offers more that images; her art tells stories that touches the heart and soul.
Not that she has retired, art is her life. Marge is trying to make up for lost time before "The Big Sleep", as she puts it. She is trying to paint each day and has resumed her lover for photography. She is one of the founding mothers of The Group of Nine, an art group that is based on.... the joy of painting with no limits and sharing that joy with laughter and good friends. Marge is also a founding member of Artists in the Parks and services as the groups Vice President.
