Marcia Brice was raised in northeastern Wisconsin, lived for 40 years in Chicago and is now back in the area. She attended the University of Wisconsin Manitowoc, the Chicago Academy of Art and Columbia College in Chicago.
Her field of study at the Chicago Academy and Columbia was graphic design. She has also studied printmaking and photo-screen printing at the Evanston Art Center, photography with Barbara Crane at The Darkroom in Chicago and metal work and fabric design at the Oxbow School of Art in Saugatuck, Michigan.
After her schooling she became a designer and art director with various Chicago studios for print and multi-media presentations.
Marcia started teaching at The American Academy of Art in Chicago and Columbia College in 1989. She has taught classes in Black and White Photography, Advertising Production and Methods, Typography and Letterforms, 2-D Design and Beginning Illustration.
Her work has been shown at many American Academy and Columbia faculty shows, the Art Center and Lighthouse Row Galleries in South Haven, Michigan, Mindscape Gallery in Evanston, Illinois, The Darkroom Gallery and Pallas Gallery in Chicago, Chicago Photography Gallery and at many art fairs.
Film has always been a love and her work in that area has covered many areas from work in black and white and color darkrooms to multi-image projections, black and white portraiture, photo etching, photo screening and photo series though the year of images showing seasonal changes.
She started attending life drawing sessions at The Academy of Fine Art and found that after 50 years out of the school she still loved drawing from the model. Her interests now are watercolor and pencil work of the wildlife and nature that surround her. She is also close to the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers.
