About Marjorie Vernelle and VernelleStudio.com



In terms of art, I've taken the long route.  Art was always around me in my grandmothers' quilts, my dad's appreciation of beauty, and my mother's own paintings.

I dabbled with it in my early adult life in San Francisco, though my degrees are in completely different subjects.  They led to a fine career teaching, both at high school and college levels.  However, I always keep an interest in both producing art and studying art history. I talk of my experiences studying and viewing art in my years in Europe in the Blog, where I post a new article each week on Sunday morning.Below is a list of exhibitions my art work over the years.

Education:  Bachelor of Arts Degree, University of Toronto, Canada
                 Master of Arts Degree, San Francisco State University, California
