Marsha began teaching art in the public schools of Washington State. When she and her husband, Peter, moved to Glen Spey in the 1970s, she set to work establishing extensive flower gardens on the couples’ new homestead. While raising two young boys, Marsha created a unique art program at the Homestead School, which she co-founded with Peter in 1978. Art projects created by the students were inspired by the many famous artists they were exposed to in the annual study of art history offered to them by Marsha.
“I loved taking my students out into the forest and fields to gather the raw materials of the plants and clay deposits to use back in the classroom.”
