Description

Marjorie was born on Nov. 26, 1910 in San Francisco, California into a pioneer family. Marjorie’s grandfather was an early St Helena vintner who had settled in Napa in 1850.

At San Francisco State College she obtained a teacher's degree and a scholarship to the California School of Fine Art, where she studied under Spencer Macky, Ralph Stackpole, and Diego Rivera. During the 1930s she produced lithographs for the WPA. After her marriage to artist Jan Sabre in 1941, she specialized in painting portraits, florals, and landscapes. Marjorie lived in San Francisco until her death on June 30, 1974.

She exhibited at the San Francisco Art Academy in 1936; Utah State Art Center in 1939; the California State Fair in 1941, and the De Young Museum in 1943.
