Marcie grew up in the San Fernando Valley, made New York her home (off and on) for over 15 years and now finds herself in the wilds of upstate New York.  She sometimes goes by the name of her great aunt Zora Jane, whom she never met but liked the moment she found out Zora tripped over things a lot. She came to New York City to study architectural history and while you will catch her looking up to read dates on cornices, she now spends her time working deep in the lovely archives of Cornell University, researching her next art piece, and sewing said art piece into the wee hours of the night.  She is grateful to her mother and grandmother for teaching her to sew, knit and crochet and to her best friend Gania who taught her how to look for the story - skills that have been among the great joys of her life.
