Marie Niehaus' Profile
ORIGIN: Barkhamsted, Connecticut
EDUCATION: Bachelor of Graphic Design, NC State College of Design, 2001
Natural forms and cultural symbols continue to provide a foundation of inspiration through different mediums. I have always liked to carve and assemble pieces. I like to make objects that move, surprise, or change with the light. The current products of my busy hands are original monoprints, raku objects, and goat milk soap.
I create compositions using a technique similar to linoleum or block printing. I carve out the shapes from sketches or found objects (like beach rocks and seed pods); from those I build layers of shapes, tones and colors until I am satisfied with the activity of the colors, that it begins to move, or that it speaks about a specific concept...
