About

Hi, I’m Marsha, and I am a collage artist. Welcome to pippengerart and thank you for coming to my shop. I make collage paintings on canvas, large and small, notecards, and whatever else springs into my brain.

I am drawn (no pun intended!) to paper. I “paint” with it when I create my collages; I “draw” with it in making figures or objects on the canvas.

You will see as I stock my pippengerart shop that not only do I create fine art collages, I also make notecards suitable for framing, so you or a friend can enjoy a small piece of my work at a small price.

Now, let’s get on with the drier statistics of me:

BASIC STATS, PERSONAL: Female, married to Alan, two amazing adult children, Laura and Nathan. Live and work in Dayton, Ohio. Doglover and until recently, a dog mother. Our beloved chocolate Lab, Maxine, recently passed away. I love books, and when I am not making art, I am reading (often about art).

BASIC STATS, EDUCATION: Bachelor of Fine Arts, concentration in printmaking, teaching certification K-12. Master of Humanities, concentration in visual art. Arts Integration specialist, with training provided by the Kennedy Center.

BASIC STATS, PROFESSIONAL: Practicing artist, of course. Director, Diane Kidd Gallery of Art at Tiffin University, Tiffin, Ohio; Artist in Residence in Dayton area schools; Teacher/professor of art and art history; Workshop presenter, lecturer, writer.

I think that’s enough for now. Send me a note if you want to know more. Happy shopping!
