Hello! My name is Marianne Vander Dussen, and I live in North Bay, Ontario.

The Creative Narrative was created to document creative people, in addition to chronicling my art practice and positive life changes that I’m attempting to implement to align my values with my lifestyle.

In addition to writing about my own developing practice, I’ll be profiling local artists’ work and finds out what inspires and drives them. Additionally, I may wax poetic about the philosophy of creativity; why it matters, where it stems from, and how to keep it flowing. I am fascinated by sustainability, artistic living and storytelling, and my writing for The Creative Narrative will centre around these themes.

So, welcome! Thank you for visiting. I’m so glad you’re here.

This blog is a sister site to my professional page for my artwork and research, which you can find linked here
