Marci has loved drawing and painting for as far back as she can remember. She is self-taught and prefers painting with acrylics because of their versatility, favoring bold, vibrantcolors. She also paints with oils when there are no time constraints.
What inspires her? "It can simply be an idea that comes to me, either by seeing something with my physical eyes or my mind's eye, and it ignites a spark, that desire to bring it to life through my own unique expression."
