Marie is a self-taught artist, beginning her career in 2004 - initially specialising in painting succulents, capturing the bold colours and shadowing - still found in all of her works today. Marie has now added native birds into her images - bringing together her Scottish Heritage and combining it with a native New Zealand twist, particularly honouring her beautiful home tucked along the coast of the South Island. “My creative soul is driven by the world around me. I am so grateful and blessed to now live in the beautiful Catlins. I often drive around looking for a photo opportunity. Seeing maybe a heron, kingfishers, cows and wildlife that give me ideas for my next painting”. Admiring the imagination of artists like Dali and Jimmy Lawlor - these inspirations can be seen clearly in Marie’s Balancing Act series. “I love being able to create a piece of work that makes people smile”. Marie’s main ambition is to continue working as a full time artist, and encouraging more people to embrace art and have a go!
