' When I create a work, I always hope that it will give the same feeling of well-being to the person looking at it that I feel when I work. Geometric shapes have the ability to soothe and reassure me and that's exactly what I want to express through my abstract compositions.'
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 his work, where the light takes all its power.
On canvas, Marie works minimalist and organic works using natural materials. On paper, however, she enjoys working with more complex compositions using the delicate texture of paper to create collages and grids. She sometimes spends entire hours drawing lines because she feels so peaceful and out of time during this process.
