My name is Marcy LaBella
and I'm an artist living in the northeastern USA. I'm working
hard to create a safe space where people can
return to when they are stressed and want to be creative. I
have been a teaching artist for many years and a working
practicing artist all my life. Over the years I’ve found that
teaching art to others was truly enriching and I love seeing
others blossom and grow in their own creative practice while
finding their own unique way in art. I feel that art truly feeds the soul and
if I can help facilitate someone’s journey in some small way, I can hopefully make a difference.
I have a lot of new projects I am excited about for 2024. I have a new YouTube channel, I am enjoying creating process videos and learning about editing, it's a work in progress so I'm learning as I go along. Please use my links to visit my channel and follow my journey there. I would appreciate it if you would take the time to like and subscribe to my channel as each like and new subscriber is very appreciated as they makes my channel grow.

There will also be paid levels where you can help support me as an artist and get access to free digital content and low cost digital content like ebooks, potterns and my live classes.

I cannot remember a time that I didn’t create art. From my very earliest memories I have used crayon, paint, paper, fabric and any available material to create art and express narrative. I am a multi-media artist and work in paint, clay and other materials. In paint I combine layers of paint, paper, mediums and drawing materials to create contrasts and luminous subtleties. I refer to the human figure, animals, birds, fauna and natural organic forms. In general, common themes are carried throughout my work in all mediums and working with different materials enables me to keep my creativity open and flowing.
My work is also influenced by my Italian American immigrant background and the work of my grandmothers, who were both fiber artists. The delicate and deeply textural aspect of their lacemaking and fiber work is mirrored in my own work. My work combines this strong sense of historical past with abstracted imagery and the ethereal.

I am full time teaching artist. I am passionate about art and the process of creativity. My greatest hope is to help others by giving them knowledge, encouragement and the necessary tools they need for success. No matter which medium I am teaching; I always encourage each person to practice and develop new skills while moving towards individual interpretation and deepening creative thinking.
