Marie is an acrylic artist settling in the state of Georgia after having lived in the four States of Mi Tx, Ca, and Pa while raising her children with her husband. She was able to take away from each state the magnificent beauty that each offers in their specific state colors. During this time, she was always creative but didn’t really pursue her passion of painting until later in life. She believes we’re all so uniquely made to create beautiful things and has had this desire instilled in her since she was young.
After a neurological issue, she discovered the therapeutic benefits of creating with bigger brushes, lots of color and the discipline of daily painting. What she once ran away from to mask her health problem, the discovery of the wonderful benefits of pursuing and forming habits of daily painting has been life changing. Through her journey of discipling herself to daily painting, she noticed that using art as therapy, she will paint tighter or looser depending on how her body is feeling that day. Instead of choosing not to paint, she uses that time to go with the flow and rhythm of her body and use the size brushes and colors that calm her over sensitive system. She loves the idea of creating good habits of daily painting no matter how she feels and knowing that who she is today will not be who she will be next month or next year as an artist and she cannot wait to see how her art will evolve. As of now the magical colors of florals push their way through her paintings sometimes looser and more whimsical and sometimes more reserved and tighter.
She’s blessed to have a home studio set up above her garage with lots of light with her rescue dog Dakota watching over her. On a side note, she’s fallen in love with raising backyard chickens from baby chicks. And they love her back by saying hi each morning with a squawk and a breakfast egg.
