Marie has drawn and painted all her life though initially studied Chemistry on leaving school. It was while bringing up her two children up that she found the opportunity to develop her artistic passion. Marie first studied art with the Open College of the Arts and then undertook an Access to Art and Design course at North Oxfordshire School of Art, Banbury.
After successfully completing this she then studied for a degree in Fine Art with De Montfort University, graduating in 2002 with First Class Hons. During, and after, this time Marie also worked part-time as a picture researcher and librarian for a photographer. Since 2007 she has concentrated on developing her painting and currently also works as a part-time administrator for the newly formed Buckinghamshire Craft Guild.
Marie’s work is exhibited regularly, nationally and internationally, and at the Affordable Art Fairs. She has had work selected for The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, The Lynn Painter Stainers Prize Exhibition, The National Open Art Competition, the Society of Women Artists open exhibition and for The ING Discerning Eye exhibition. The latter on five separate occasions, winning the ING Discerning Eye Staff Purchase Prize in 2014.
Marie has been based in Oxfordshire for 32 years and now lives in Benson.
Previously at Commercial Square Studios in High Wycombe Marie moved into a brand new studio in February located in a group of six artist studios in the lovely village of Turville near Henley and Marlow.
