Marguerite Marra Moore
I am an American artist, living in San Francisco, California. I am originally from the East coast where I received my classical education in Sculpture from the Art Students League of N.Y.C., N.Y., on the Merit scholarship and my Bachelors Degree in Graphic Arts and Education from Bennington College in Vermont in 1991. I teach clay modeling, protraiture and the figure to adults and children in public and private schools and in my studio.
Commissions I have done include lifesize bronze animals, animal stone carvings and portraits . I paint landscapes on location. Everything I paint has ancient mythic symbols that are revealed in optical illusions in my brushstrokes. My skill in my craft is important to me. I am greatly inspired by nature and by the great masters of the past and old American folk art. I try to bring out the architypes from the ancients in my portraits and create some kind of a pun.
