‘Sweet Treats’
Bringing joy to trying times

Comfort can take many forms — a hug from a loved one, a call from an old friend or, of course, a bite of something sweet. That’s the inspiration for my new “Sweet Treats” series! Included is the piece above, “Afternoon Tea”, which has already sold.

These are in response to the pandemic, and our need for joyful times and a connection to the special people in our lives. Hope it brings a smile!

Scroll a bit to see another piece in the series.

Wednesday - Sunday

11AM - 4PM at the Port of Ilwaco

Returning north
We’re back in Washington from NZ 

Here we are earlier this month saying goodbye to Whangarei, New Zealand. Bittersweet, for sure! We hate to leave our beloved NZ, but also look forward to returning to our Ilwaco home. We had a smooth and safe journey. Visit us in the gallery!

Anacortes Art Show in June

I’m participating in a group art show at Scott Milo Gallery in Anacortes, WA beginning June 4 and running throughout the month. More info.
New from Marie

Two brand new pieces from the “Sweet Treats” series
Both of these pieces have sold, but I’m busy creating more artwork for my new “Sweet Treats” series this spring! Above are “Matters of the Heart” and “Afternoon Tea”. Both are mixed-media on canvas and both measure 28”x20”. Keep an eye on the gallery’s Facebook page where I’ll debut new pieces from the series. I also have an upcoming show in Anacortes where the series will be featured. See Facebook for more news on that as well!

Beach Basket bonanza!

We want to send a BIG, hearty thank you to local fiber artist extraordinaire Susan Spence for not only keeping our gallery going while we were in New Zealand, but for featuring so many of her wonderful handmade Beach Baskets! Thank you, Susan!

Thinking about our recent trip from New Zealand to Washington state brings to mind my piece “Journey”, which you can see in the gallery at the Port of Ilwaco.
