Marie channels her diverse influences into a strikingly simplistic focus- to communicate the simple beauty of our world through the combination of rich colors and organic forms. Her work is collected worldwide, and can be found in the homes, businesses, and galleries of loyal collectors from the USA to Europe to Australia.
