Marie’s vibrant and colourful artworks provide an ‘art moment’ away from the stresses of treatment to distract, entertain and inspire young patients and the Hospital community. Marie swapped life as an international model to become an artist, sculptor and illustrator of books and never looked back! Featuring illustrations from Meltdown Moments.
Creating joy is what Marie does best, but she also likes to poke fun at society in a humorous way to get people thinking. I believe humour is a rubber sword, it allows you to make a point without drawing blood. I hope also to make you ‘think’ as even though I paint with humour it is also often with a social comment about the human condition and the world around us.
We celebrate Art Moments as a part of the 2019 Adelaide Fringe, showcasing the diversity of Marie’s work including paintings, Giclee prints, 3D prints and illustrations from the books she has collaborated on’ so along with her furry friends she includes some artworks of local Adelaide scenes along with their colourful characters.
