Marie has grown up in Michigan, along with her husband, daughter, dog and two kitties. They all live just outside of Detroit in Dearborn, MI. She began her creative path when she went to MSU to earn a BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Graphic Design and she ended up falling in love with handmade design. After graduating she became interested in creating paper flowers for her own wedding so that she would have keepsakes after the big day was over. She made those simple spiral cut cardstock flowers and also some wallflowers made out of patterned napkins. Instantly she began to fall in love with the process, the possibilities, and the techniques for making life-like blooms from scratch. She stays busy researching flowers and other paper artists, networking, creating custom palettes, making new templates, finding resources and working happily in her home based studio. She really enjoys being part of the paper florist's community because they are so supportive and inspiring to her. Paper flowers provide a lifetime of beauty and nostalgia and creating them for others to enjoy is one of her greatest honors.
