Marguerite White spent the better part of a decade working and living on commercial waterfronts in the US and Europe. From Nantucket to Vinalhaven, ME, Coney Island, Amsterdam, Cologne and New Orleans, she both painted the waterfronts and was a house-painter on the waterfront before moving to the middle of Texas, where there was no waterfront. Marguerite earned an MFA in Painting from the University of Texas in Austin, where she had, under the tutelage of a Dominican Shamanista, stopped painting altogether and started drawing on the walls. She currently lives in Boston, and teaches at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Illustration, and drawing at College of the Holy Cross, Worcester. She has previously taught at Clarke University, Worcester, and the DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA. She maintains a studio in a former fur vault and continues to draw on the walls. She also holds a BFA in Textile Design from the Rhode Island School of Design.
