Hello, my darlings, and welcome to my little corner of the online world!
I am Katharine Marie. I dream of a world where I can live in a volcanic mountain with an army of dragons who bring me all the hot cocoa that I can possibly drink while I write page after page of fantastic literary prose.
However, since I’m actually afraid of being underground, and magic is sadly not yet visible on Earth, instead! I live in an RV with two cats, drink exorbitant amounts of coffee and tea, and express myself through words and music.
As a young woman in her early 20s, I am still figuring out exactly what I want to do with my life. However, over the past year or so, I have become increasingly convinced that living life is actually an art form. If that is the case, then does it really matter if we ever truly figure it out or genuinely master it?
The thought that living our lives as an art form is where the name of this blog came from: L’ART CLASSIQUE. It translates from French to mean ‘classical art’, a phrase that I have been applying loosely to my life. Although it may be a bit vague, I’ve become quite attached to it.
However, if you wish to find me anywhere else across the internet, I tend to go by my pen name, Katharine Marie. I am a creative writer, focusing either on flash fiction or full length novels, depending on my mood. You can go here to find out more about my literary works, including my first published novel – Rebellion.
During this stage in my life I am attending university, pursuing an undergraduate degree in music as an offshoot of my lifelong study as a pianist, and minoring in creative writing. My standing right now indicates that I will graduate in the Fall of 2018.
I blog about a variety of different topics, which is why I tend to classify myself as a lifestyle blogger. College struggles, health and fashion, inward beauty, reckless pursuit of your dreams, the journey of writing, and my faith; these are all categories that I regularly touch on.
In April of 2017 I started filming videos to post on YouTube, as another branch of my creative expression. I still continue to publish at least one blog post here every single week. Enjoy!
