About the Artist

Marcy Belzner was born in 1950 to a family of artists and craftsmen and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her earliest toys included clay, leather, wood, and summer squash which she would carve into boats and sail down the irrigation ditches on the family farm. Active in the Scouts, Marcy spent her teen years stomping around the Santa Cruz Mountains and working in the Tasso family bead and craft store during the sixties.

Off to seek her fortune, Marcy worked for the next 18 years as an engineering technician and technical writer for the pharmaceutical research company that developed skin patch therapy but always was studying art and felt that some day it would be her real career.

Marcy concentrates primarily on figurative work and has been greatly influenced by the Bay Area artists of the 50's: Thiebaud, Diebenkorn, Bischoff, and currently in Arizona admires the work of Scholder and Nieto. While working in Apache Junction, the colors of the bright desert sky as well as the ochre and sienna of Superstition Mountain found their way into her paintings.
