Biography

Chuck Marshall (Charles W. Marshall, Jr.) was born in Wilmington, Ohio in 1957. The small town of New Antioch, about 7 miles outside of Wilmington, became home to Marshall, his one brother, five sisters, mother and father. The surrounding area was known for its agriculture - mainly hogs and corn. So Marshall grew up working farms and spending time in his father's construction trade, but Marshall knew he wanted to do something different with his life from a very early age. He would spend hours each day sketching images of fields, hillsides, animals, and people that he would see while roaming the countryside.

He studied one year at the Art Institute of Cincinnati before moving on to study at the California Art Institute in Southern California. His art career includes many years as an illustrator and graphic designer as well as his fine art.

Marshall has been invited to and participated in many national plein air events as a guest artist, such as Olmsted Plein Air Invitational, Atlanta Georgia, Door County, Wisconsin, Great American Paint Out, in the Apalachicola/ Panhandle Florida area, Wayne Plein Air, PA, and Finger Lakes Plein Air, and the first annual Cape Ann Plein Air Festival in Massachusetts. He has participated and won awards in other national events such as the Annual American Impressionist Society’s competition.

Marshall and his work has been published in International Artist Magazine, American Artist Magazine, Plein Air Magazine, and American Art Collector. Marshall’s work can also be seen at the Museum Of Spiritual Art located in Franklin, Ohio, where he has a large number of figurative and landscape works.
