About Me


Picture of Me

Hi, I’m Marie

Welcome to Skyblogpink



Me – in Random Numbers

  • 6,  The age at which I knew I was an Artist

  • 16, How old I was when I knew I couldn’t possibly be an Artist

  • 3, Number of rooms in my house where art materials are kept. (possibly a very conservative estimate)

  • 1993, The year I became a teacher

  • 3 -18, Age range of children I have taught

  • 24, Number of hours in the day I would spend: making Art; gazing at new Art materials; thinking about Art; writing about Art; reading Artists Blogs; Experimenting with new techniques and media, if I wasn’t also busy loving being a teacher

  • 42, The meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything…

  • 1997, The year my amazing daughter was born

  • 2, Number of cats I own (enough to make life interesting; not enough to be a mad cat lady)

  • 6 Million, my favourite number for exaggeration

  • 6 Million, number of Art books I have read (not that much of an exaggeration)

Art Books

  • 33, Years it took for me to call myself an Artist

Number 1 Mission in life – To give everyone who is willing, the tricks and tools to reclaim their Artistic self and to nurture children’s skill and confidence so that they never lose it.
