About Marie

Marie Wise is a life-long painter

From an early age her parents instilled an appreciation of art and encouraged her to explore her individuality through her art. She started drawing at age six and continued through college, winning awards and completing commissions. In college she explored the fine arts, along with education, journalism and psychology. From there she mastered the mediums of colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic, oil and mosaic, all while holding full-time jobs and raising a family.

Today, she focuses full time on her paintings. Her deeply-rooted passion for color is evident in each of her elegant designs.

Marie strives to unite her unique experience, vision and talent into colorful statements that find resonance with the viewer.
