Marie currently lives between the pristine bushland of The Murramarang National park and The South Sea. The close proximity to the beauty and occasional harshness of nature inspires her imagination and uplifts her spirits. In her words: ”From my childhood, Nature became my best friend. It offers me not only desired freedom, but also everlasting inspiration and retreat. The wonderful world around me full of little sensations always removes me from ordinary.”
