"Painting is exciting.   The challenge of representing an idea with color and form is addicting.   In trying to achieve an artistic goal, the process itself is an enjoyment."

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, and through membership in North Shore Arts Association, Cape Cod Art Association and Academic Artists Association.   Her award-winning work can also be seen at Sheepgate in Blandford, MA, as well as in juried shows as announced.
