Marie Marfia is a pastel artist who likes painting skeletons, portraits and landscapes.

Marfia got her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, Mich. She worked the next 30 years as a graphic designer, honing her compositional skills and learning how to work under deadlines. In 2011, she tried pastels and promptly fell in love with them. She paints every day and hopes with all that practice by the time she’s 80 she’ll be fantastic!

She currently lives in Fountain, Mich. in a tiny little house with her husband, Steve Oliver, and two happy dogs. They have three grown children.
