September 2017 Artist of the Month - Marie Speader Haas
Marie has been painting and drawing pictures since she was a child growing up in Erie, Pennsylvania. After many years teaching high school biology and doing her art on the side,she turned her attention to serious studio work in 1984.
She soon established herself as an avid watercolorist in northwestern Pennsylvania where she ran her own Sycamore Gallery and conducted watercolor and drawing classes. Marie currently works out of her studios in Ocoee, Tennessee and Bradenton, Florida.
It is an honor to host her artwork in the Museum Store at the Museum Center at 5ive Points.
