About the artist
Marie (Bouvet) Frederick was born in Deauville, Normandy. After a brief period studying at L'ecole des Beaux Arts in Rouen and Paris, she traveled extensively throughout Europe and north Africa where she began to develope her own expressive style.
Marie came to the West Indies in 1984 falling in love with the raw beauty of Dominica, a 'garden of Eden'. She married Clem, a man of the soil who is also an artist, working with wood and stone. Together with their son Isaiah, they have made their home and studio near the village of Borne, creating an extraordinary retreat carved out of a remote, forested mountainside.
Marie specializes in pen and ink, water color, acrylic and oil pastels. She finds inspiration in the rhythms of Caribbean daily life - the old shingled houses, the vibrant tropical vegetation and the drama of a natural world that is larger than life.
