Since 2016, Marie is a designer for a well-known glass works in Sweden (Reijmyre Glasbruk). 2015 was a milestone in her career when she received an international art price in Rome, became one of the nominees for Artist of the Year in Palermo and received the Award in her category with the motivation: ” For her creative and engaging way to express herself on the international market. She is also an official Member of Mondial Art Academia based in France.

 

She received 2015 years Culture scholarship in Finspång, the community in Sweden where she resides , with the motivation: ” For portraits and inspiration on an artistic journey. With artwork that passes on aesthetic values in Finspång and in the rest of the World.

 

“Over the years I have found that viewers of my art often recognize themselves in it. They find grief, despair, desire, happiness and hope. Just like life itself. This soulful aspect of my work is the result of the different feelings I aim to convey, and the varied media I am able to employ, including acrylics, watercolors, graphite and colored pencils, in order to achieve my desired result.

 

I paint photo-realistic paintings, drawings and portraits, and what I call ‘Inspirational paintings.’ I get my inspiration from music, life and injustices in society. Whatever I am painting, I want it to be full of a true sense of life, so that people can see the soul within”.
