Roche, Marie


An emerging abstract artist originally from Cork but now based in Dublin. Working as a nurse for more than seven years she recently became interested in cultivating her artistic talent. She held her first solo art exhibition in July 2017 entitled ‘Colourful Moments – Embracing Change’ which was a resounding success. Her theme for that exhibition was acrylic abstract flowers, ranging from A2-A5 in size, all mounted and framed. She recently took part in the People’s Art on St. Stephen’s Green which she found very positive and motivating as an up and coming artist. Marie is in her final year of completing a diploma in Art Psychotherapy – Person Centered Approach which has opened many doors to allow her to express herself through art without the pressure of performance and outcome.
