About Marie Gardeski

Small marie gardeski portrait s

My name is Marie Gardeski. I am an artist living in Indiana. I grew up in the Mitten (Grand Rapids, MI, to be exact), received my BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and my MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. I live 44 feet above street level in The Museum of Imaginary Animals (a rambling, south facing 100+ year old apartment) where I share a sunny studio with my favorite person and artist, David Birkey. At my toy-strewn desk I create delicately detailed drawings of seemingly sweet subjects in strange (and sometimes slightly scary) situations. I also design fabrics featuring hand-drawn plants, animals and miscellaneous doodles. My husband and I are the team behind the brand/shop Imaginary Animal.
