Marcia didn’t receive any formal art training. She calls herself "an obsessive illustrator"
says, "I’ve just always
done it. I never consciously thought: that’s what I want to do.” She had a number of jobs,
including nursery teacher,
which is when she developed her taste for story-telling to young children; “I learnt what they
found accessible and what
they enjoyed.” Giving up teaching to paint, she studied watercolour at Richmond College and
some successful local
exhibitions before a friend suggested that she took her work to show Walker Books. Marcia also
has an MA in Children’s
Literature. She lives in London and has two grown-up children and three grandchildren, one
extra-large dog and a cat.
