Marcia Burtt’s paintings hang in public and private collections, including M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Cedars Sinai Outpatient Cancer Center.

Her work has been featured in American Artist and Art of the West, on the cover of PleinAir and Southwest Art, and can be found in numerous books, notably California Light: A Century of Landscapes published by Rizzoli.

Standing in open spaces for hours a day has given her a passionate commitment to conserving land threatened by development. Since 1986 she has worked with the Oak Group to record these places in paint and to publicize them through exhibitions.

“The great joy of being a painter comes from being fully immersed in ‘here and now’ and striving to convey that to others.”
