I make things with my hands. Stories. Pictures. Graphics. Websites. Feasts.

At heart, I'm a visual aesthetician and cultural anthropologist. Writing, photography, design, graphics, and food are my primary mediums. Usually, I write something first, then get the idea for complementary graphics at some point in the writing process.

 

I've always been a theme person. Maybe this explains why I thrived in advertising. My work naturally comes with themes; sometimes simple, sometimes complex, but never abstract. I'm not sophisticated enough for abstract. I enjoy the challenge of making a statement with pictures, graphics and words.

 

Marsha Coupe

 

Native to Northern California, I lived on both sides of America's coasts, before immigrating to Kent, 'The Garden of England,' twenty years ago. I have always felt like an outsider, so the immigrant's life suits me. It means paying attention and taking nothing for granted.

 

While living in England, I mastered driving on the opposite side of the road (left, left, left) without taking out too many roundabouts. Made seven lifelong friends (I'm talking to you Katy, Babsi, Diane, Veneda, Mike, Kathryn, Bernadette) Survived the devastating loss of my husband, Richard Atkins, to 'osteosarcoma of the jaw'. And worked regularly in media, as well as an independent creative director; graphic designer; website maker; photographer and writer.
