Ivadell Marie grew up in Minnesota but has lived most of her adult life in Colorado. She loves photographing road trips (references for her paintings), and is frequently accompanied by her two Standard Poodles, Cezanne & Cassatt (yes, artists run in the family). Her studio is in her renovated brick home, with gardens & distractions.
Ivadell returned to painting in 2010, choosing pastels as her medium, and although she has now returned to corporate life (in 2012), she is still pursuing painting including teaching in her Englewood studio.

Ivadell Marie's first two pastels were critiqued by Albert Handell, who stated, "These are frameable". And when she informed him they were painted just the week before and were her very first pastels, he walked up to her & shook her hand. Now that is an inspiration!
