Marianne Kirby's Profile
Welcome to Once Upon. Here you will find Reclaimed Whimsy of all sorts.
Marianne Kirby is an artist, writer and editor based in Orlando, FL. Her work is based around practical themes, but created with an eye to the different. As such, a simple computer cable becomes a belt, and simple boxes made of paper emerge as complex sculpture. Her eye for fine detail has earned her some attention in Europe, and she has had work commissioned for private collections in the UK. Her work with limited edition volumes of her own poetry, each individually hand-bound, has found its way into private collections around the country.
Kirby sees her work as following the idea of repurposing materials. "I like to see what I can turn things into," she says. "It's about finding new ways to look at the things we often don't even really see."
