Marie Ackers was born in France. Her aim is to capture the spirit and essence of her subject. “I deconstruct the movements, simplify the shapes and identify the dynamic and the rhythms of the lines to produce contemporary sculpture”. Marie works with both traditional (bronze, raku, ceramic) and modern (clear acrylic and Perspex) materials. She has exhibited with both the Society of Equestrian Artists and the Society of Women Artists at The Mall Galleries.
