Marite is currently in the process of opening her own art space, the Art Space Collective in Perth, Western Australia. The Art Space Collective is an inspired and innovative community space providing a venue for exhibitions, artistic sessions and studio space for the creative. 

 

Marite, along with her husband Maz,  is aiming to generate and develop a creative energy in the art space, the first of its kind in the coastal suburb of Scarborough, in order to honour and remember their three beautiful and artistic children, Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin.

 

Art Achievements


Marite's three images were selected for inclusion in the First Run Exhibition, 2006, held at the Bakery, in Northbridge. The image “Wallpaper” was chosen to promote the exhibition in X-Press magazine.

 

The image “At Nonna’s House” was used as the promotional artwork (flyers, X-Press Magazine) for the Performing Arts Society’s production “She Told Me So”, 2006

 

2007 Runner Up Perth Centre for Photography IRIS Award for portraiture


The image “Wallpaper” was shortlisted for the Adultshop.com Erotic Art Prize, 2007. It sold on opening night, was used in page three of the exhibition booklet and displayed and critiqued in a review in “The West Australian” newspaper.

 

In addition to presenting her work in solo exhibitions, Marite was asked to participate in Face to Face 2009, where she exhibited a selection of images taken in 2005 in the Muslim Community of Kulhudhuffushi, Maldives as part of an exhibition and Feature Presentation to Launch the Global Poverty Project. This was presented by the 2004 Young Australian of the Year, Hugh Evans, at the Astor Cinema, Mt Lawley, Perth.
