Marjorie grew up in Westport, CT. She attended the Hartford Art School (1971-73) and Tyler School of Art (1973-1975) where she spent a year in Rome. After college, she moved to Guilford, CT, and had a successful 30-year career in graphic design, working for several well-known firms during the 1980’s and 1990’s before opening her own award-winning company, Sopkin Design in 1993. In 2015, once her two daughters finished college, Marjorie returned to painting full-time. She presently works in her studio in downtown Guilford. Her work is in private and corporate collections in Connecticut, New York, London, New Mexico, Oregon, and California.
