Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Marie Malicki! Marie is a member of the In Print Professional Writers Organization. She is an avid reader, caregiver advocate, and road trip enthusiast. Marie is working on several short stories, and to honor caregivers, a memoir entitled, At Twelfth and Marquette. Marie resides in Loves Park, Illinois with her dog Bella.
Marie’s work, Nehru Jacket, was selected by artist Susan Hasse. Susan is a self-taught artist who spends most of her artistic effort weaving. She also makes jewelry and dabbles in collage, assemblage and painting. In her professional life she counsels new home buyers and teaches classes in home ownership.
