I paint the majority of my works in the Vermont Landscape. Painting is all about color, light and shapes. I am constantly working a painting to reflect the color and light of an object or landscape. If an artist can capture color and light then the artist can capture the moment. I like to think of my paintings as capturing a moment in time, including the emotion experienced in that moment. The ultimate goal of a work is to share the beauty of the moment with the viewer.
Playing in clay is a way for me to practice life lessons like being centered, getting messy, and letting go. I love the process of creating and being surprised by the result, and I am eager to learn more about this flexible and multifarious medium.

Marshall has been a member of the Board since 2000. He began his relationship with the Craft School in the 1950's as a student at Shelburne Central School. In those days all art classes for the public school were taught at the Craft School.
Marshall grew up on Shelburne Farms and started doing chores at the age of 3. After attending college at Wesleyan and UVM, he came back to work on the Farm full time. In 1972 he and his siblings founded the non-profit organization which owns and operates Shelburne Farms today. Over the course of his years there he has held many jobs including: field hand, cheese maker, sugar maker, Buildings and Grounds Manager, Special Projects Coordinator and currently Carbon Drawdown Coordinator.
A lifelong photographer, Marshall started the Lenses on the Land at the Farm which has grown into an enthusiastic community of dozens of photographers. Many of his images can be seen in Farm publications. He dabbles in woodworking, specializing in chainsaw carpentry (bet you didn’t know that was a profession!). He continues to pursue his favorite sports, snow and water skiing. He has served on the boards of the Shelburne Library and All Souls Interfaith Gathering, where he sings in the choir.
Marshall lives on Shelburne Farms with his wife Kate, one of Shelburne’s representatives in Montpelier.
Nancy Winship Milliken is an environmental sculptor creating site-specific work in urban and rural landscapes. Her work explores the tension of man in the landscape, and his desire to belong and be a part of the landscape. Communing with the earth is where this art lies. Milliken's environmentally performative sculptures reveal the actions of wind, rain and sun as they transform shapes and alternative materials, adding an element of time. Recently, Milliken has traded studio for farm to collaborate with the people, animals and land of Bread and Butter Farm in Shelburne, Vermont to create work that reflects a passion and reverence for the environment
