Marceil DeLacy

Marceil DeLacy’s love of carving began as a child living on the outskirts of Seattle. With a pocketknife, she created images from ivory soap, then letter openers from kindling wood and arrows from tree suckers before graduating to the use of chisel and mallet. She learned her craft from the wood itself, letting it guide her eye and hand. In the early 1980’s she began serious fine art sculpting, winning awards in juried shows and having her work shown in the Bellevue Art Museum. After a break to pursue other interests, she resumed her artwork on a full-time basis, working in wood salvaged locally in the Pacific Northwest. Her lifelong affinity for trees and love of nature inspire most of her sculpted subjects. As human encroachment and climate change displace flora and fauna, her art serves as a way of giving voice to nature. To this end, she strives for simplicity of form and uses only a clear finish or no finish at all in order to let the natural color and beauty of the wood speak for itself. It’s a process she calls “listening to the forest.”

Marceil has shown widely in Washington, including Northwest Gallery of Fine Woodworking in Seattle, Art Uncorked on Mercer Island, Brackenwood Gallery in Langley, Smith & Vallee Gallery in Edison, Ryan James Fine Arts Gallery in Kirkland, and has won numerous awards. Her portfolio ranges from flora and fauna to trompe l’oeil sculptures.
