Born in California in 1937, Bruce Marsh was educated at the University of California Santa Barbara, UCLA, and California State College at Long Beach. Over the entirety of his professional career he has devoted his energies equally to teaching and painting. In 1969 he joined the faculty at the University of South Florida, and taught there until retiring, as Professor Emeritus, in 2003. He has exhibited his paintings extensively in Florida and the Southeast, and has had exhibitions in Los Angeles and New York. He has had five Museum shows over the past 3 years, a solo exhibition at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, and group shows at the Baker Museum, Naples, Tampa Museum of Art, and the Maitland Museum of Art and Art History.

During the past 25 years a major part of his efforts have been devoted to large scale paintings for public spaces. Last year he has completed two large (4’ X 15”) paintings for the Houston Methodist Hospital and a large canvas (4’ X 14’) for a private collection.

He is very involved in working directly from the figure, and has hosted a weekly Figure Drawing Group at the Firehouse Cultural Center in Ruskin, since 2015.

Marsh's work is primarily based on landscapes, and is centered on his interests in perception and intense observation. Over the past few years he has been working on a series of complex paintings of groups in very ordinary situations and places, primarily from his Florida suburban surroundings.
