Marie’s art on Danish Royals’ chocolate box

Marie's stunning artwork on the Danish chocolate boxHallett Cove naïve artist Marie Jonsson Harrison has pulled off an international artistic coup, with her  artwork printed on the prestigious limited edition series for SV  Michelsen Chocolate-box in Denmark.

The leading chocolatier visited an exhibition of Marie’s work in Denmark last year and promptly commissioned her to create the lid of the chocolate tin for 2015 with a Danish flavour.

She is the first person outside of Denmark to be commissioned to design the tin, which the Danish queen, Margrethe II, collects each year.

“It is a wonderful honour,’’ said Marie.

“The chocolate boxes are all numbered and Number one goes to the Royal Family, number 2 goes to the Michelsen family and Number 3 goes to me, the artist.

“I have had quite a few exhibitions in Denmark last year and I was lucky that SV Michelsen came to the opening of an exhibition and he liked one of my artworks.’’

Marie’s artwork features Copenhagen tourist highlights and also Prince Frederik and Princess Mary,

the Australian who won his heart at the 2000 Olympics.
