About the Illustrator
Marie has been drawing strange and unusual characters since she was a young child and would spend hours buried under paper, crayons and paint. As an adult, she went on to complete a degree in fine art painting and has now found a true love for children's illustration. To Marie, each character has a life of its own and she finds great joy and excitement in leading them through their adventures.
