About Marie

Marie Sequin Top WEB

Marie is very much like a Hummingbird, the title and inspiration of her last show.   A playful spirit, who inspires joy and happiness in people around her.  As a child, Marie even believed she could fly.

“The process and creation of art for me is an emotional, spiritual, physical and chemical reaction to my vibrational being” – Marie Schlederer

“Painting is my way of making a difference” says Marie. “I tell visual stories using colours and shapes which will hopefully inspire or help people connect on a different level to themselves and the world around them. One of her favourite artists, Henry Moore once said: “There are universal shapes to which everybody is sub-consciously conditioned and to which they can respond if their conscious control does not shut them off”  – Henry Moore

When she paints Marie taps into what the colour and artwork vibrations are saying to her. Sometimes she can hear the paintings giggle as they come to life! Not dissimilar to a mad professor creating something wonderful and fun in their crazy colour laboratory.
