Marjorie is a best-selling author and illustrator of "Creative Cats Coloring Book" and "Owls Coloring Book," and over a dozen other books on art and creativity. She also is an award winning mixed-media artist whose works are in collections worldwide. Born and raised in Chicago, Marjorie is an alumna of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned a BFA degree from Eastern Michigan University.
Marjorie's fanciful coloring book style evolved from her love of patterns, which she developed through an earlier career as a textile designer. Also influencing her style is her lifelong passion for collecting vintage illustrated books and ephemera. Her love for all things nostalgic finds its way into her coloring book imagery.
"As a coloring book artist I enjoy delighting the colorist with beautiful and detailed themes on every page. Each drawing displays a profusion of patterns and fanciful settings for the colorist to bring to life. I hope that the experience of coloring my artwork is inspiring, fun, and helps release everyday stress."
In her career, Marjorie has designed hundreds of popular collectibles and crafts, including paper dolls branded by the Project Runway® TV show. In 2011 she co-founded Jr imagination®, a publishing company whose books and games encourage creativity in children and adults.
Marjorie lives in Southern California with her husband, daughter, son, two dogs, and her extensive antique book collection.
