"Eyeglasses are tiny pieces of art that compliment and accent your own unique personality." -Anthony Marquez, CEO Marq Optical
I grew up in East L.A. near what is now known as Cesar Chavez Ave. I was able to grow up and experience the vibrant cultures, colors and electrifying life the neighborhood radiated. It was so inspiring to see so much life, art and talent everywhere you looked.
Growing up, I was surrounded with and introduced to art by my aunt and uncle who were commercial artists. They showed me a new perspective on life and always encouraged me to explore and try new things.I spent hours engrossed in their many art books. I was attracted to all the details, lines, shapes, and colors.
The turning point in my life was when my father took me as a child with him to get his new prescription eyeglasses. As soon as I entered the shop, I was captivated by these beautiful pieces of art on display.
The concept of glasses going beyond a medical need, to an accent piece showcasing your personality influenced me to attend American Career College for the optician program. I wanted to be a part of this amazing culture and lifestyle.
After American Career College I was lucky enough to intern at an optical boutique that carried their own brand. The time I spent there opened my eyes to the new possibility of having my own business. I could combine my love for art and optics to design my eyewear. Whatever I could imagine I could create.
With over 20 years experience in the optical industry, working for various private and international companies, I envisioned a company dedicated to providing an outstanding selection of quality eyewear with knowledgeable and friendly consultants.
Marq Optical’s primary focus is creating the best possible customer experience. Shopping for eyewear should be enjoyable, comfortable, as well as informative. These beautiful pieces of art will not only accent you, but showcase your personality.
