Marie had her first art assignment at the age of six, when her teacher asked her to draw posters for her bridge club. It proved to be a success - she became her teacher’s favourite until she left primary school. Her ability to tell stories also began at an early age when she created comic books with her siblings during the long school holidays in Ireland. Marie’s love for writing stories and creating inspirational art have been revived in the past few years and she now uses her computer, an electronic pen, tablet and accessories to bring her ideas to life. In Runaway Princesses her childhood dreams reach fruition as she fuses her love of telling stories, teaching children honest life lessons, combined with her experiences as an actor and producer in an inspirational story with motivating and delightful characters in fascinating settings.
