Known as a child prodigy, Gwen Marcus began creating her first sculptures at the age of nine. Praised for her accuracy and sensitivity toward the human form, Marcus intends for her pieces, whether of a nude leaning over the water's edge or a woman carrying a basket, to exude strength, energy, spirituality and sensuality.
Marcus is the recipient of many awards and honors including Gold Medals of Honor from the Allied Artists of America, The American Artists Professional League, Audubon Artists, the Hudson Valley Art Association, The Catharine Lorrillard Wolfe Art Club, and a Certificate of Merit from the National Academy of Design.
Marcus is also a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society and the American Artists Professional League. She holds memberships with Allied Artists of America and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club.
