Moments with Marcy
Marcy was born in the Philippines and had moved to the states, bounced a couple times, and ended up in good ole Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Which is only a hop, skip, and a jump from Pensacola, Florida.
She discovered her love for doodling in elementary school, which every kid loves to doodle, but it soon turned into a challenge of "can I draw that leopard?" And from then on, it was the classic argument that every artistic or non-artistic person could relate to: "Is this what I want to do with my life?"
After a little less than 9 odd years and 3 different colleges, Marcy had a solid answer to that life long question: "Yes! Art is amazing!."
She also became the proud owner of two degrees in Art during that time period.
In 2010, a Painting with A Twist studio opened in her town, which would provide the perfect job for her personality and abilities. The opportunity to instruct all different types of individuals, most of whom have no confidence in art, turned out to be a unexpected fulfillment she hopes will continue to carry on in her life.
She pulls inspiration from her obsessions, whether it be from the geek mythos or classic mythos, and ties them into most of her artwork. Portraiture and the study of the human figure are another obsession of hers, providing her with the excitement and drive of creating a realistic image from brushstrokes and paint.
Her first time love is oil paints, but has worked almost exclusively in acrylic for the past 6 years. She is also very proficient in pastels, graphite and ink. And has been known to dabble in the digital world here and there.
She currently resides in Pensacola, Florida, with her husband, daughter, and a small menagerie of animals.
