David Marquoit is a veteran of Art from the Heart, and one of our most prolific artists. David absolutely loves to paint and is often found at his painting station, passionately absorbed in his work from the time he arrives in the morning until the time he leaves. Besides painting, he is also avidly involved in music group, ceramics, collage, drawing and weaving. David is a man who truly loves being engaged in the creative process. What he most likes about Art from the Heart, he says, is “talking to people” and “selling artwork.” David also enjoys going for walks, and enjoys watching TV, spending time with family, being involved in Special Olympics, and going to Mt. Scott dances in his spare time.
