Why did Marsha choose to name her business Equinox Art & Design?

Why didn’t she name her freelance studio after herself like many other designers? Marsha wanted to leave the possibility open that it could grow into something more special than she originally imagined and that if successful, the studio could outlast her own lifetime.

Marsha understood that to succeed in the arts industry she needed to be as equally talented with her business skills as she was with her artistic ones. Add in her love of the seasons and the sun and moon, the name “Equinox Art & Design” just fit.

 

What is Marsha’s future vision for the studio?

Marsha believes art makes the world a more beautiful place and her future vision for the studio includes collaborating with other talented artists, working to create amazing artwork for many different products and applications.
