Marina Powdermaker died in Harrisville on Sunday, June 28, 2020, following a brief illness.

Born Aug. 27, 1961, in Keene, NH, Marina spent her early years in Gilsum, before moving to Newton, Mass.

She received a Bachelor of Arts in visual arts from Antioch College in 1986 and a Master of Education degree from Antioch New England.

Marina worked as an artist and teacher in New Hampshire, on the Zuni Reservation in New Mexico and in New Zealand.

She taught traditional school subjects, as well as art, music, dance and drama. Marina’s art was a creative constant in her life. Deeply spiritual, stylistically varied and creatively unique, she made her own paper, floated paint on water, and created many stitched tapestry and mixed media collage pieces.

She will be greatly missed by many: her brothers Frank, Dan and Patrick; sisters-in-law, Ruth and Carla; nephew Ben and niece Lucy; and a large network of caring friends and soulmates.

A celebration of Marina’s life will be held at a date and time to be announced.
