Marcia is one of the next generations of emerging artists to come from the Utopia region.

She is the daughter of Margaret Turner Petyarre (herself an accomplished artist), Marcia spent much of her formative artistic years alongside the likes of Minnie Pwerle, Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre and others.

During the ensuing years, Marcias' painting evolved into her own very distinctive style, her bold eye catching application of acrylic paints in her particular linear design has caught the attention of collectors of fine aboriginal art worldwide.
