About

I'm trying to make a living making, teaching and sharing art with others! Beauty will change the world.

Growing up with a mother who loved to draw, Marie started keeping sketchbooks at a young age. Between her love for dance, music, theater and art, she was naturally headed towards a life pursuing the arts. In high school she took her first art class. When her teachers encouraged her to continue with art, she took more advance classes and was inspired to study art in college.

Marie started as an Art Education major at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. However, she realized she was not called to teach in the schools, but somewhere else. She then invested her time studying Art Therapy, loving how creating art could help heal people who did not know how to speak about their feelings. Still, she felt she was not called to be a therapist, either.

After graduating, she held art camps for Atchison, starting from scratch by teaming up with the Atchison Art Association. Having this experience, and the community outreach opportunities her art professors gave her in college, she discovered she loved bringing art to those who normally don't get to experience it. Community engagement and outreach was her calling in the arts world. Now she works with a non-profit called Kansas Academy of Theatrical Arts doing scenery, murals, and choreography for their projects.
