Marie has always been an artist at heart. Beginning in high school, she supplemented classes by attending a painting academy at night, where she learned to see beyond colors and shapes.
In college, she graduated with a Goldsmith degree and went on to a designing career in the jewelry industry. After leaving the jewelry world , Marie resurrected her paint brushes and poured her talent, time and energy into her artwork. She's now a full-time artist!
Metal is an intrinsic aspect of her work, illustrated by her artful incorporation of gold or copper leafing and metal objects into her 2D mixed media artworks.
Marie is a member of Quorum Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. She also exhibits in prestigious juried art shows throughout California.
