Originally from Texas, Marcy now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. Marcy discovered her love of art at an early age and received a BFA from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. But she placed her art on hold to begin raising her family.
At the age of 30, Marcy suffered a medical complication after the delivery of her third child, leaving her in a coma. Upon finally waking, Marcy had lost thirteen years of her memory, permanently. Faced with the daunting task of rebuilding her identity, Marcy slowly put the pieces of her life back together. It wasn’t until years later that she returned to her love of art and began painting, dedicating her life to making the most of the second chance she had been given. Her recently published memoir, Blank Canvas, delves into the trauma, victories, setbacks and ultimate redemption of those years.
Known for her abstracts, her strong use of color and recently her still life paintings, Gregg has found her voice on large-scale canvases. Marcy is represented by galleries in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina, Chattanooga, Tennessee and Dallas, Texas. She has had 11 solo exhibitions. Her work is found in private and corporate collections across the United States and abroad.
“Both the joy and seriousness she brings to her paintings have been hard-earned, and the gravity gives each piece an inexpressible depth.”
