I knew I wanted to be a writer and artist ever since I was a child, even before I could write words. I would draw pictures and record the story on my little recorder. Fast forward to present day… I am now a full-time freelance artist, writer, and illustrator. Besides being a writer, artist and illustrator, I am a mother of four amazing kids, and I have an amazing husband who supports my unconventional careers. I want to make a difference with my words and bring joy with my pictures.
I have an Associates Degree in Fine Art from Blue RIdge Community College, a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art from James Madison University and a Masters in Education from Emory & Henry College.
I would love for you to follow me on my journey of writing, illustrating and creating art. You can join my reader email list and follow me on the following sites: @mariannecooperart on TikTok, https://www.facebook.com/mariannecooperart/ , my FB artist page, or
