Biography


Born in Dearborn, Michigan, Marie Johannes grew up in a family of artists, draftsmen and creative individuals. Marie’s love of color and texture, as well as art appreciation, led to a degree in Interior Design from Michigan State University. That program of study included many drawing and watercolor rendered assignments which piqued her interest in watercolor painting as a fine art. During her years as a practicing interior designer in Birmingham, Michigan, Marie continued fine art classes at the local community Art Center and there discovered the joy of painting outdoors.
In 2003, Marie and her husband, Bob, moved to Fraser, Colorado where the thrill of painting Colorado’s natural beauty became Marie’s passion. Marie switched from watercolor and acrylic paint to oil paint. Since then, Marie has studied with many fine painters including Scott Christensen, Jeanne MacKenzie, Tim Deibler and others. She has painted all over Grand County and traveled with other artists throughout the western states and California, searching for beautiful scenes to capture in oil. She has won awards for her work at the Glenwood Springs Fall Art Festival and the 2011 Art Out of Thin Air Member Show in Grand county.
