Marie Baird is a contemporary painter originally from Airdrie, Lanarkshire.
In 2015, after successful careers in both the Public and Private Sectors, an opportunity arose which allowed her to rekindle a passion for painting that life and family commitments had put on the back burner.
In 2018, Marie completed a Diploma in Art, at the Norfolk Painting School.
Having lived and worked in the Far East and Europe, she is now based in Norfolk where she lives with her husband John and continues to paint in oils and mixed media from her Dereham studio.
Her works have been acquired by private collectors in the United States of America, Ireland and throughout the United Kingdom.
“For me painting, especially in oils, is all absorbing. I feel fortunate to have this opportunity, with the support and encouragement of my family, to explore my passion through my work”.
