Her collection of food-related art reflects her early interest in drawing and painting, coupled with her education – majoring in Studio Art and Anthropology. She used this background as a springboard for travel, journaling and cooking in numerous Latin American countries. A successful Kickstarter campaign allowed her to assemble her large archive of recipes and illustrations into the colorful and appealing cookbook, Mi Comida Latina.
An internship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum brought Marcella to Washington DC, and and after, she maintained a full time position working in museum exhibit installation. She has remained in DC as a working artist since 2011, dividing her time between commissioned work and expanding her collection of original watercolor art prints for sale at a variety of market venues and online. She is an avid river kayaker and an Oregon native who appreciates the great outdoors as a balance for the busy live of an inner city DC resident.
