“Wildfire” by Joseph Marcou
Joseph Marcou was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. His mother was a teacher and a talented artist, so art was always a part of his life. He began drawing and making things at an early age. His parents died young and at 16 he moved to Mexico with his uncle who was a comptroller of a U.S. Commission. One night while at a concert he sketched the pianist. He showed it to his uncle’s friend, the artist Enrique Asunsolo, who realized his talent and suggested that Joe make art his career. This was his defining moment.
“Starlight Gardenia” by Joseph Marcou
Joe attended the Art School of New York State Tech, majoring in commercial art, now called graphic design. He served as Art Director at several design firms before becoming National Director over four International Paper Company package design studios. His last position was Revlon’s Director of Package Design.
“Golden Calla” by Joseph Marcou
He then opened Joseph Marcou Design Inc. which he ran for 33 years, specializing in package design, logo and trademark development, corporate brochures and annual reports. Some of his clients were Gorton’s of Gloucester, Johnson and Johnson, and Perillo Tours, to mention a few.
“Red Poppy” by Joseph Marcou
Throughout his long design career, Joe continued fine art painting for himself. When he finally retired from the corporate world , he was able to turn to the sheer enjoyment of creating art full time. He is particularly well known for his extraordinary floral paintings, capturing their essence with drama and unusual style. His paintings are in many private national and international collections. He has been represented by the Farnsworth Gallery and exhibits his work in many outdoor art fairs. Joe says he is inspired by the resilience of nature and what its limitless imagination and whimsy creates.

Debbie earned her degree in textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and founded her own global print design company in Manhattan. After moving to Florida, she was eager to learn oil painting, “the medium of the Masters”. Early in her career, Deborah was represented by a local gallery where she painted beautiful roses using the techniques of the Dutch masters. Awed by the beauty, complexity and mystery of flowers, she continues to follow her passion.
