Before becoming an artist, Margery Soroka had a distinguished career in public service, holding positions in the federal government and the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration. In 1957, at the age of 37, she turned her attention to painting. Over the next three decades, Soroka created thousands of watercolors, mastering the medium with a unique approach that earned her a place in the American Watercolor Society.
A native New Yorker, Soroka credits her signature style to being mentored on the principles of good design and being open to contemporary influences. Hailed as an “artist’s artist,” Soroka imbues her often everyday subject matter with abstract beauty.
