An artistic prodigy, Marcia Wendel sold her first painting at the age of 7 at the prestigious Norton Museum of Art in Palm Beach, FL.
After college, Marcia became an artist for the Florida Natural History Museum, painting panoramas for permanent exhibits. The curators and scientists expected all the images that she painted to be exact… down to the last feather, which appealed to her love of accuracy and detail.
Her themes have ranged from Kentucky thoroughbred farms to golf course landscapes to the Florida Everglades, featuring tropical fauna and wildlife. Her murals are found in numerous exclusive country clubs and private homes throughout the US and Europe.
Family vacations in Big Sky, Montana wooed her permanently to Bozeman in 2007, where she quickly established herself as a Rocky Mountain wildlife artist. Marcia’s signature technique is an enhancement of her paintings with sophisticated, decorative art designs of Montana’s Indian Nations.
When asked what she gained from her move to Bozeman, MT, she replies: “Altitude, of course, but also a new perspective and a deep appreciation for the irrepressible, untamed power of nature.”
