Marie was awarded a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Printmaking from the University of Brighton, before studying for an MA in Print at the RCA.
Her work often reflects her interest in the philosophical and spiritual and is inspired through her Buddhist understanding.
Responding to the ethos of the Arte Povera group (in particular, Guiseppe Penone), she bridges the analogue with the digital with the use of ‘poor’ materials, particularly through the tangible qualities and substance of trees, which are a recurring theme in her work. Materiality and process are fused and layered in range of multi-media approaches, including photography, experimental printmaking, collage, installations and book art.
Marie’s work has been exhibited and published throughout the UK.
