Cityscape is based on a picture of buildings in Europe. The buildings are transformed in Photoshop to make the shapes of floating buildings. Marie chose a blue background to give the impression of a city underwater.
Fantasia started with a walk in Stanley Park. In the summer, the park is filled with beautiful flowers and plants. The print started with a small sketch, then developed into a fantasy flower sketch. Marie added vibrant teal and lavender colours to match Blue Sky’s teal basics.
Summerland features flowers Marie found in North Vancouver neighbourhoods. She took pictures of the flowers, then went home and painted them. She said, “If summer was a print, it would be this one!”
At 25, Marie has a long career ahead of her. When asked where she’d like to be in five years, she said, “I’m hoping to keep designing prints each season, incorporating more of my designs to make clothing for people of all ages!”
