Marie Blom is a native of Moss, Norway, where she was born in 1990. From an early age she was fascinated by painting and drawing the world around her. She took painting courses from the age of thirteen to closer study how to depict landscapes, still lifes and portraiture. She followed the Arts and Crafts curriculum in her high school, from where she graduated in 2009.
Following graduation, Marie then set out to find a teacher of Classical Realism, which is when she came in contact with Per Lundgren, a Norwegian painter and student of Odd Nerdrum. She studied with Lundgren during 2009/10, completing Old Master copies, genre paintings and also preparing studio materials. During this period of study, she decided to commit to study painting on a more long-term basis and, with Lundgren's encouragement, she applied to the Florence Academy of Art in 2010. She studied at the Mölndal branch of the school under the direction of Joakim Ericsson. During her time at the FAA she successfully completed the drawing and painting program, and won a student scholarship prize in 2012.
After graduating in June 2013 she was offered a one-year position as an instructor at the Florence Academy of Art Mölndal from the fall of 2013 to the spring of 2014. Marie is now back in Norway where she is working towards upcoming exhibitions and comissions. Her future goal is to contribute to the cultural life of the Norwegian and international painting world.
