MSCO welcomes back visionary artist Marie Howell. Many of you will remember Marie’s stunning art from the gallery. Her giant divine feminine images which Marie describes as Contemporary Sacred Icons were always one of our biggest attractions. Marie creates monumental embellished acrylic paintings and inspired assemblage sculptures in which she repurposes unique and eclectic found “treasures” into new creations. Marie never disappoints when it comes to engaging your imagination and spirit and bringing her figurative altars to life. Her work has been featured In Phoenix Home and Garden magazine and was included in a slideshow at the United Nations Conference on the Status of Women.

Marie is also a certified Cosmic Smashbooking teacher and guide. She offers private and group classes on creating your own cosmic smashbook which is a roadmap on the journey to your own personal knowing and guidance from your inner wise self.

Marie’s art demonstrates the power of beauty and creativity as a tool of healing, inspiration, and devotion. Her artworks range in price from below $100 to several thousand dollars depending on the size, complexity, materials, and time committed to each piece. Marie adorns most of her masterpieces with sparkling light from gemstones, metals, vintage jewelry, and one-of-a-kind finds to blur the lines between 2D and 3D artworks. Every piece comes alive with magic and invites a connectedness to the past, present, and future across spiritual and cultural traditions. Visit Marie at her website at
