Marie Lawyer

Marie Lawyer was born in British Columbia, Canada and grew up drawing rocket ships and planets in the margins of her notebooks. She was drawn to art making from an early age, crafting little paper sculptures inside the hollow of her wooden school desk and practicing pointillism instead of math. She graduated from the University of Alberta with a degree in Art Education and spent a few years teaching before setting into full time art-making. Her art is influenced by a love of precision and order, and she works with meticulous detail. She works in watercolor, acrylic, mixed media as well as in three dimensional wood, canvas, metal, cardboard and paper. She currently resides in Vermont.
