Marshall was born in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada, near the Millbrook First Nation Reserve, where she currently resides. She obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1990, and she also studied theater studies at Dalhousie University in 1990. In 1993, she was an artist in residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts; in 1994, an artist in residence at Est-Nord-Est Centre du Sculpture in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec; and in 1998, an artist in residence at The Roundhouse in Vancouver, British Columbia. Marshall creates multi-media and installation pieces that give a voice to Canada’s First Nations—a voice that has been suppressed and neglected by colonization. A poet and a playwright, Marshall has travelled across Canada and the United States as a lecturer, visiting artist, and art juror. She has received project grants and awards from the Canada Council and Canadian Native Arts Foundation.
