' Nature, and what surrounds us in general, offers us a fabulous abstract spectacle, alive and in motion. I see shapes, lines, curves, links, shadows, layers and above all I imagine what is hidden behind this vision. So I enjoy transcribing my thoughts on canvas by giving life to these abstract shapes through a play of textures.'

About


Marie is a self-taught abstract artist, born in 1989, who lives and works in the countryside of Lille, France. Creative since childhood, she first studied art design, then computer graphics, communication and marketing. After having exercised various professions, she decided in 2019 to return to her first love, painting. Today, Marie is a full-time artist.

In her work, she mixes geometry with a certain form of poetry by creating stories about the invisible or the ephemeral. Mainly inspired by nature, trees in particular, and the things that surround her, she makes many sketches which she then works on canvas, wood or paper. Although she has a specific inspiration for each series, she seeks above all to create harmonious and balanced compositions, free of interpretation.

Her favorite medium is acrylic paint to which she gives volume by exploring different ways such as collage, sand or embroidered thread. This gives life to her work, where the light takes all its power. 

On canvas, Marie works structured, minimalist and organic works using natural materials in superposition.
On paper, she likes to work complex compositions by using the delicate texture of the paper to create collages and grids, or in a more liberating way by working shapes with irregular lines.
