Marie Hartig has enjoyed the opportunity of a very international upbringing as the daughter of an Austrian diplomat, growing up in Japan, Pakistan, Kenya, Germany and the UK. She attended the Kent Institute of Art and Design and then graduated with a BA in Fine Arts and Communication from London Guildhall. She also went on to do a Masters in Global Politics at Birkbeck, University of London. 


She found her medium when she discovered painting walls. They have become the canvas for her imagination and creativity. Here, she can let the inspiration that she has collected from parts of the globe during her travels, come to life.
