Welcome to my online portfolio, I'm Marie, an illustrator and licensed artist with a passion for children's picture book illustration. I've been drawing and sketching since childhood and hold a degree in Design, specifically Landscape Architecture and Garden Design. After becoming a mother I made the decision to pursue my illustration career. In August 2016, I started illustrating stationery and that same year I began licensing my designs. Nowadays, you can find me illustrating children's picture books, in particular stories about Nature. Everything I draw is lovingly critiqued by my two children, Ella (10) and Espen (8).
