Marie has a passion for the natural world whose stunning colours and striking contrasts provide an endless source of inspiration. The subjects of her mixed media paintings range from earthly phenomena to mysterious worlds elsewhere in the universe. Much of Marie’s work approaches abstraction and expresses in a very personal way something magical, the “secret soul” (Kandinsky) of what surrounds us.

 Marie studied fine art at Algonquin College, Ottawa and at St. Lawrence College in Brockville. A juried member of Art Lending of Ottawa where she exhibited her work for a number of years, she has also exhibited in group shows of the Ottawa Watercolour Society, Ottawa Mixed Media Artists and the Project Contemporary Art Group in Wollongong, Australia as well as in solo exhibitions in the Ottawa area. In addition to showing her work she also teaches art and has served as an art juror.
