Macie studied Studio Art, with an emphasis in Photography, in Oakland, California, before graduating from Queen Margaret University with an MSc. Art Psychotherapy where she explored communal-based approaches to art therapy.  

She has experience working with children, young people and adults across education and healthcare settings and aims to use art to encourage children and young people to develop a sense of empowerment.  

Originally from California, Macie loves spending time in nature, either hiking or enjoying the sun on the beach, and sewing is her favourite creative outlet.
