Nice to meet you!
MY NAME IS MARIE POL
It was at the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia that I had my first art encounter. At that tender age, I could only observe the bottom part of the paintings but that was enough to start a life-long obsession with the line, colour and texture. Hermitage is the place where my soul resides ever since. —Marie Pol
Marie learnt oil painting through years of art tuition from established (and famously strict) Russian masters, followed by insatiable self-education and experimentation. In 2018-2019, she has completed a fine art program with the Imperial Academy of Arts (St.Petersburg, Russia).
Having lived in Europe and Singapore for many years, Marie has now settled in Sydney where she continues her artistic journey.
Before becoming a full-time artist, Marie has built an international career with the world's biggest professional services firm. She holds an MS in French Linguistics and a BSc in Economics. Marie is fluent in Russian, English, French and Italian.
If not painting, you will probably find her reading, dancing tango or planning the next mountain adventure.
