Marsha is always on the lookout for another adventure. For years, she haunted all the ski resorts in BC and Alberta, explored the backcountry as a park ranger and worked on fire towers in BC’s north. In 1979, she headed up into the Yukon wilderness with Bruce and nine sled dogs, then helped write their book, Nine Dog Winter. Having lived in many of the Canadian provinces and territories, she now happily resides on Gabriola Island, BC.
An active book designer for over 30 years, helping authors achieve their book dreams, apps and ebooks, Marsha stepped out into the world of abstract art. With eyes closed, trust in the process of experiential learning, and in encouraging her opposite hand to take over, she allows and uncovers her unknown stories in acrylics with ink, graphite, conte, collage and more. From there, the pieces evolve in an atmosphere of letting go and letting be. By believing in a process of cause and effect, and by stepping outside the mind, her work evolves into a colourful expression. She loves the found energy of abstract painting. Total fun!
