Meet Marcia R. Wise of Marcia R Wise Fine Art

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marcia R. Wise.

Marcia, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started painting when I was 7, growing up on Cape Cod. I had found a book on Impressionism during my weekly visits to the library with my mom at age 6, and I drove her crazy until she found me a place to take painting lessons. Provincetown was vibrant with creativity and at 9 I found myself taking weekly classes at The Cape Cod School of Art, then owned and run by Henry Hensche. He was a protege to American Impressionist Charles Hawthorne who originally started the school. I continued with classes and each summer was able to be a part of a summer workshop. Later, after Henry passed, I continued to study with Lois Griffel in Ptown.
