BioMarjorie Hicks is a local artist, who has an unquenchable desire to paint en plein air. When seeking to become a “better portrait artist”, fellow member Dawn Whitelaw, encouraged her to get outside and paint! Marjorie is grateful for that advice, and encourages others to do the same. Marjorie has enjoyed traveling the country participating in plein air events, and is teaching group and private workshops, as well as painting for upcoming exhibits. She has been a very proud member of The Chestnut Group since 2013, and has served on the Board of Directors from 2014-2017.
