"Marjorie's natural talents (painting and music) were carefully tutored from her earliest years by her famed artist mother, Marian Barnett (1913-1978); at the age of 11 she was advanced enough to study at the San Diego Fine Arts Gallery. Concurrently, she was becoming an accomplished pianist.

Later, attending La Jolla High School, the University of Washington and Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo), Marjorie won various awards, a scholarship in painting and obtained a California State Teacher's Credential for both art and music. Travel in Europe and two years with the Army Special Services in Northern Bavaria helped to polish her art techniques and understanding to a fine point.

She studied with such internationally-known artists as Leon Franks and Bennett Bradbury..." according to the now-closed Pomeroy Art Gallery in Cypress, California. - Info courtesy of Claudette's Vintage
