About Marie...

Hi there!

Painting has always been on my bucket list and I am finally pursuing my passion full time!

I was raised in Quebec City, Canada, the birth place of Cirque Du Soleil. It is a fertile ground for artists.

Moved to Toronto to obtain my Graduate Goldsmith diploma at George Brown College. Worked at several premiere jewelers, first as a jewelry designer and then in sales. Moved to Boston to finally settle in Southern California with my husband and two boys.

A few years ago my youngest son took a picture of a lovely bird and it sparked my artistic renaissance.

Mixed media is very interesting to me, I like to make artwork using ordinary objects and presenting them in unusual yet interesting way.

Was showing at the Art-A-Fair as part of Festival of the Arts in Laguna Beach California, summer 2015.

Featured artist at Art-A-Fair summer 2019.

Will be the guest artist at Showcase gallery in Santa Ana in the Winter Imaginings from October 29 to December 1, 2019

Awards:

Mention of Honor - Mixed Media OC Fair 2019 Professional Fine arts

Best Theme Award -OC Fair 2019 Professional Fine Arts

2nd Place Best Artist - Laguna Beach 2019

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy the creative process!
