    I loved the way Marien integrated nature elements to art. It was very relaxing to take her class and very insightful too. She is very peaceful and she has a unique way to guide her students to see the importance of nature and how we are connected. <3


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My aproach is simple and effective. My students learn to be active observants and understand the world round them. Learning drawing skills is promodial to all other artistic disciplines. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold a degree in Art/ Art History and Graphic Desig from the University of Iowa. In 2018, I obtained a Doctorate degree in Eco-Art Therapy and Organic Psychology from Akamai University. I've been an Art teacher since 1996 in private schools in Puerto Rico and Florida.
