Meet Marcy

Painting, drawing and writing. After two decades of a fast-paced, deadline driven career in television and print production, Marcy scaled back her work to these three things, and rediscovered the joy of creating. 

Working in oil paint or colored pencil, Marcy loves getting lost in the details of a still life, or capturing the essence of beloved people or pets in portraits. 

 

Marcy has short stories published in four NaNo Los Angeles Anthologies (4th, 5th, 7th & 8th Editions) and is serving as an associate editor on the eighth edition. She is releasing a series of writing prompt journals in 2021, and has plans to publish her debut fantasy novel later in the year.

Outside of her artistic and writing pursuits, Marcy loves to cosplay, kick butt at laser tag, and she often moonlights as kilted 9th level D&D human Fighter Battlemaster named Shemp Jenkins. She lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband/best nerd Bryan, and their two cats, Fergus Hammertime and Fiona Shazam.
