Biography


 
Marie was born in the midwest and fell in love with the huge vistas of the farmlands near her hometown of Davenport, Iowa.
 
Her love of art led her to NYC where she studied at The Art Students League and then Italy where she studied History of Art as well as Studio Art. Marie has studied with Joe Anna Arnett, Sherrie McGraw, Gregg Kreutz, Nancy Bush, Michael Workman and most recently with Kathleen Dunphy.
 
After concentrating on painting Still Life’s she ventured outside to paint in the Plein Aire tradition. This is when she discovered her love of painting Landscapes. Her style has transitioned to a tonal quality in much of her work.

Besides being a passionate artist, Marie is an avid fly fisherman . Her paintings benefit from the landscapes and waterscapes she encounters while pursuing the wily trout.
