In 1998 Marie commenced a two year training course in Dancing the Rainbow and qualified as a facilitator in 2000. This work involves working on the chakra system through dance/movement, colour and aromatherapy. She has given workshops in a number of centres in Dublin, Ireland.

Reflexology Treatments

In 2008 Marie decided to train in Reflexology. She found the Irish School of Natural Healing in Portlaoise and enrolled in their 14 month training course. In October 2009 she received her Diploma in Reflexology. During her training Marie treated many women and men gaining wide experience and building her confidence as a Reflexologist. She now includes Reflexology in her work in the Art and Healing Centre and is delighted to be doing the work and with the response she is receiving.

Marie taught painting in her studio (The Redwood Studio) in Dublin for 21 years before moving to Tipperary. Marie studied Art Education in NCAD 1979-1984. She exhibited her work on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin, the Ranelagh Gallery and various other venues over the years.


In 1995 Marie became very interested in complementary healing. After learning Transcendental Meditation in 1996 her interest grew in our ability to go within and our potential to heal ourselves.
