Marie's painting style and clay sculptures are colorful and whimsical. Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she draws inspiration from the intense colors along the Emerald Coast in the Panhandle of Florida.
A graduate of The Art Institue of Pittsburgh, Marie worked in the trade show display industry for several years. She painted on walls and furniture in Pittsburgh, and since 2002, the Navarre, Florida area.
Marie has been providing artwork in one form or another to Juana's Pagodas and Sailors' Grill on Navarre Beach for 30 years.
The Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce chose her art for the 2009 Navarre Fun Fest Poster.
