Marjorie Moody was born and raised in California and has lived in St. Paul, MN with her husband/photographer Michael J. Zaccardi since 1976.  Besides painting her passions include travel, gardening and playing piano.  Her main concerns in painting are color, mood, rhythm and spontaneity.  Marjorie likes to paint on location in watercolor and oils, and works in the studio on larger canvases in a fairly loose, expressionistic style.  Her subject matter reflects her inner life and response to her surroundings.  Beautiful melodies, luminous colors and peaceful surroundings are close to her heart and she tries to capture these feelings and experiences on canvas.  Her paintings are an affirmation of life, joy, freedom, beauty and peace.


Marjorie received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Minnesota.  She has had solo exhibitions nationally and internationally.  Her work in is private collections throughout the U.S., Germany, France, Switzerland, Japan, Norway, Canada and Italy.


Marjorie maintains a studio in her home and has two home art shows every year.  The next show is Sunday, June 2, 2019, noon - 6PM.
