Marie was born in France 1966. Studied graphic design in Paris (E.S.A.M) and took up painting under the tuition of Prue Pardue RA, and the St Ives school of Art. Boyle has a strong interest in photography and ceramics inspired by the japanese “Wabi Sabi” philosophy, the beauty in imperfection. The layers, the rhythm, the accident and the suggestion, all have their place. Each picture should become a visual poem.
