More on Marielle
This is a small collection of my drawings, paintings and prints.
I graduated from New Brunswick's Mount Allison's Bachelor of Fine Arts program with their 2005 Fine Arts Departmental Award.
I spent the next 5 years working in the community arts field in Vancouver. (With a few worldly-wanderings here and there.) I ran workshops, created large-scale installations and coordinated many artistic programs. The highlight was orchestrating the community arts programming for the Surrey Celebration Site for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. This site was awarded Best Public Event of 2010.
After Vancouver, I headed to work for an alternative education program in the backwoods of Ontario. Regularly dressed in costume, I ran some of their most interactive and colourful ateliers. This is where I broadened my facilitation skills and fell in love with challenging people to step outside of their comfort zone.
In 2014, I became a mama and we moved to Montréal to continue our life's adventure.
