Marie Flahive loves to paint, and to share her experience.  A graduate of the College of Our Lady of the Elms (Bachelor of Arts, Art / Education), and the University of Massachusetts (Master of Arts in Teaching Art), she has been both a studio artist and certified teacher in public and private school settings. She continues to offer watercolor classes at her studio in downtown Westfield, MA.

As a studio artist, Marie accepts painting commissions and also pursues her own themes.  She exhibits at her studio gallery in Westfield, MA (22 Cherry Street), and also through her memberships in North Shore Arts, Cape Cod Art and Academic Artists Associations.   Her award-winning work can also be seen at Sheepgate in Blandford, MA, as well as in juried shows as announced.
