Marsh is an alumnus of the Los Angeles Art Center School and a veteran of the General Motors Design Center. While at GM he grew to love the engineering alchemy that turns paper design into three dimensional painted metal. This interdisciplinary experience which brought together business, engineering and art gave Marsh the energy and imagery that he has developed into his shop scene style. Marsh's reputation as a serious artist was firmly established before he began painting his now famous auto themes. His painterly realism, his sense of drama, and his classic use of color show in all his series whether children on pedal cars, antique racing, romance of the automobile, or the design of the VW Concept 1 car. These paintings, from Marsh’s earliest to his most current work, will be on display September 2, 2006, through November 12, 2006 in our on-going Art Wall exhibit series featuring the work of Automotive Fine Arts Society (AFAS) members.
