Marie is a first year student in the fiber area in the Department of Craft and Materials Studies. She spent the last seven years living and working at Penland School of Crafts where she became obsessed with making shoes, quilts, and other weird stuff out of fabric and paper. Most recently, she tried her hand at fine woodworking and marquetry. Guided by Anni Albers’ notion that any material is worth making art with, she is interested in using unpretentious materials in new ways to subvert what is known or expected.
