Marie grew up in the mountains surrounding Grenoble, the capital of Dauphine (the ancient lands of the king) in the French Alps. She climbed the ancient walnut and oak trees and closely observed the ibex, marmots and foxes around her. Allowed to roam free, she developed a deep love for nature early on. It combined with the admiration for strong minded women passed down from her grandmothers and she tries to do justice to these two themes in her art. Being outside is good for the soul and mother Nature is awe inspiring. Traveling the world to experience other cultures and wild landscapes while trying to go back in time to the origin of humanity is a passion and sharing this experience with other like minded people is a gift. She would love to share it with you too.
