Artist Statement:

"My process of painting starts on location by developing the structure of the work with an underpainting. In the studio, my interest is then how to create space with the established information.”

Her education includes studies at Parsons School of Design, a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, and an MFA from the City University of New York.

Marguerite has taught at the Maine College of Art Continuing Studies department for the past twenty-four years.

Her work is in both public and private collections in the United States and Europe.
