Marsha Nance Krohn
Marsha made her first artist original doll in 1998. With her personal style ever evolving, favorite subject matter runs from human emotion to current events, a pun... sometimes answering the question, “what if …”, or simply offering a little silliness, and sometimes telling a bit of a story.
Marsha sculpts in polymer clay or air drying clays, appreciating the different qualities of each medium. Facial features are detailed with acrylic paints, chalk pastels, ink and colored pencils. The construction and armature processes vary, and figures are costumed in textiles.
Marsha’s work has been exhibited in Santa Fe, Kansas City, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and locations in Texas, receiving numerous awards for her work over the years. She is a founding member of Texas Association of Original Doll Artists, established in 1998, and in 2008 was honored to be accepted as an artist member of Original Doll Artist Council of America (www.odaca.org). Marsha offers her work at galleries and art shows.
Marsha was born in Galveston, Texas, and grew up there. She studied humanities at the University of Houston. After marrying and living in other cities for many years, she and her husband Rudy now call Galveston home where they enjoy the coastal lifestyle.
