About Marcia

The Mysterious, colorful, universal storytelling elements of ART….. Chose Me, at a very young age.

ART gave me the gift of translating the joy of life, natural history and even my dreams, with pen and brush, colorful pigments ,paper and canvas.

A Maori belief that I hold to be true:

“Art came from the gods and in that sense is a sacred activity…. It is dangerous, because the Artist is held accountable for what he produces.”

– Marcia Ray
