Marcie Evans graduated from Thomas Nelson Community College in May 2015 with an Associates of Applied Science degree in Computer Arts. Her main interests are in graphic design and typography, but she has also studied motion graphics, video, web design and photography. She has worked in many areas that allow her to express herself creatively including at various times being a freelance artist, sculptor and floral designer. Marcie was born in Newport News Virginia and always had the desire to create. As a child, she entertained herself for hours at a time drawing, painting, and making things with her hands. Her parents encouraged her creativity by supplying materials and books and then enrolling her in private lessons. Her education extended to classes at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center, Sarah Creek Potters, and various art courses offered through adult education. In the early 1990’s Marcie married and started a family. The children were always exposed to nature, art and books, and soon the laundry room contained an ‘art closet’ containing a variety of arts and crafts materials that were readily available to the children. She began working from home as a painter for collectibles companies. While this enabled her to be home with her children and work while they napped, it didn’t end the desire to create something of her own. She began working with gourds (carving, painting, pyro-engraving) and clay. In 2002 Marcie entered the Poquoson Seafood Festival Arts and Crafts show and won third place. This was the first of many awards and successful years at the festival and eventually she expanded to showing in galleries and other outdoor shows. Marcie is also blessed to be a freelance sculptor and painter creating displays, props, and various decorations out of EPS foam. Away from the art world, she enjoys gardening, raising chickens, and restoring and driving her 1977 Corvette.
