Marie Claire Macadar

A playful artist from an early age, Marie Claire began to create work with a theatrical flair when she discovered puppetry while studying at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). She then immersed herself in storytelling and visual performance and has created six original puppet shows to date. Having worked with artists ranging from Naomi Fisher to Lyon Hill, Marie Claire has had the opportunity to learn about concept, process, and perseverance from many notable creators. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from MICA in 2017 with a BFA in Fibers, and she now resides and works in Los Angeles, where she is a member of the Los Angeles Guild of Puppetry.
