New Member - Marsha Turner Pluhar

Hello, I'm Marsha Turner Pluhar a recent Create Portugal member and would like to introduce you to a few examples of my work  Oil paints are my favored medium, but since arriving in Portugal one year ago I've been working in watercolors because of the portability.   Below is an example of my larger than life size paper doll cuts (oils on paper, cut out and mounted on wood - the hat and feather boa fit onto the figure- all presently in the United States) and a couple of watercolors.  To see my resume, artist statement and sets of cut outs, monoprints, watercolors and ceramics, please go to  I'm very much looking forward to participating in Create Portugal activities and exhibits.  Thank you.
