Marie Elizabeth Sinclair of Hamilton, ON discovered her passion for artistic expression when she was an adolescent living in Lethbridge, AB. As a young child Marie lived all over Canada and in Mali, West Africa with her family. Marie is familiar with short stories, spoken word, poetry, pencil, acrylic, polymer clay, card making, cake decorating & photography. While engaging frequently in these different mediums Marie has a particular passion for portraits and finds herself often coming back with wonder to the human form. Aside from her natural affinity for the arts Marie has engaged in the process of studying art with a tutor, on her own through practice and books, and online. She was the youth artist in residence at Recreate Art Studio during the summer of 2021 where she taught workshops and was featured in an exhibit. Her work today focuses on inspirations that arise from her love of the people, places and things all around her.
