Marie Smith is an emerging artist, living on the north side of Brisbane who enjoys the great outdoors, bike riding and four-wheel driving which give her inspiration for her art. She usually paints in acrylic or water-based oils, loves texture and colour and often uses palette knives to achieve interesting effects.

She has had three solo exhibitions at Artrageous, a community art space in Deagon and was the winner of the 4017 Art Award in 2015.

Since retiring from a sign writing career that spanned 30 plus years and encompassed brush lettering, computer cut lettering and digital print, she now focuses her painting skills towards landscapes and birds.
