Marcelle Foxley Roemmich

Marcelle Foxley Roemmich works as a boat captain in South Central Alaska during the summer, and as an artist during the winter. She was born and raised in Palmer, Alaska, but spent much of her time growing up in the Southeast off the coast of Juneau. She acquired her first nautical charts from her grandfather who was a commercial fisherman. Ever since then she has enjoyed exploring the way in which the acrylic paint reacts differently to each old chart.
