As an artist, Marie has a passion for her materials and their tactile qualities. She has developed a particular fascination in the three-dimensional possibilities of paper, which is currently her favourite material.’
Marie is a committed colourist and uses a selective colour palette drawn from nature.
She is particularly interested in the creative potential of white and the way in which white materials can enhance and accentuate the sculptural aspects of her work.
In 2008, she started creating objects from her workshop in Paris (2°), but soon moved to Marly le Roi – a small town outside Paris – to give her more space to create and explore her papier maché animal artworks.
In 2011, she exhibited her works at Medley in the Marais quarter in Paris. In 2011, she became a member of the prestigious organisation promoting French Art Workshops ( Ateliers d’Art de France). Since then she has been looking to develop her business with professionals and has taken part in exhibitions such as “Maison et Objet”.
