About My Business Marsha Giegerich Torkelson is a California artist working in San Francisco and Marin County. Her art began with photography in the early 1970’s while she was teaching English. Growing up near New York City and in a family of painters, it was not surprising that she began to paint. In the mid 1990’s she took some classes at SF City College while practicing as a psychotherapist, doing social work and raising two sons. A mixed media class in 1999 brought her two mediums, photography and painting, into the collage art form. Since 2001 she has traveled widely and uses her small digital camera to continue creating her art while away. Back in the studio her photographs serve as the foundation for her collage and painting series dealing with the themes and subjects from her travels.
