Marie currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia. She received her B.A. from Smith College. After a 20-year career in technology, Marie began actively pursuing an art career in 2005.

Marie prefers to draw figures, working almost exclusively from live models. Marie appreciates how figure drawing requires the left-brain to focus on anatomy, form, and perspective while at the same time occupying the right-brain with capturing the expression and gesture of the model. Marie enjoys understanding and studying the structure of the human form. While representing the form accurately, Marie captures the expressiveness and individuality of the figure.

Solid draftsmanship and design fundamentals help Marie to expand her expressive possibilities. "The more intellectual tools I have at my disposal, the more freedom I have to create."

Marie has won awards from the Georgia Watercolor Society and the Atlanta Artists Center. Most recently, Marie won the Gold Award from the Southern Watercolor Society. She teaches at Chastain Arts Center.
