Marlena Gamble, owner of Artsy Marcey
Marlena Danice Gamble is an artist who has been creating and crafting since her childhood. Because of her learning disability, traditional academic activities were difficult for her. But, Marlena learned to express herself best by using her hands. A Beverly Arts Center ceramics course that she took when she was 12 years old first sparked her interest in handicrafts. Later, she honed her crafting through a jewelry making class in 2015. She draws on these first inspirational classes when creating art for her business. Her creations consist of custom, handmade jewelry, ceramics and rope scarves.
