I was born in Des Moines, Iowa. During the war Mom and my sister and I lived in Mason City until Dad came home. Then back to Des Moines. Graduated High School at Topeka High in Topeka, Kansas, and then went right to work for Hallmark Cards in the Litho Art Department. This proved to be better than a college education in art. Met and married my husband in Topeka, then moved to Staten Island, NY to take over De Jong's Bakery, the family business. We ended up in Colorado, bought a new bakery and settled down to raise our four kids and a menagerie of critters on a 15 acre homestead. For the most part, these were wonderful and fun filled years. Then I lost my husband of thirty-seven and a half years, January 1, 1998. Happy New Year.... It just hasn't been the same since, and a fair amount of my poetry reflects this transition in my life.

I have always drawn and painted for pleasure, to tell small stories, but I also have always written down my feelings. Sometimes when I couldn't find the words to say them out loud, or when I was filled with joy or frustration, writing set the feelings in order. (I am famous for having the right words to say the next day after the wrong words were already said!)

Locally I am a member of the Greeley Poetry Club, and the Greeley Art Association. These are fun groups and has flowered some good friendships.

I am a watercolorist of wildlife and Americana subjects. If you are interested, here is the link to my website and blog.

Story four is about Jackie


Blog Posted:2/19/2008 11:30:00 AM


This dog has a family, but that is not known for a while. She was found hiding in a construction site. She dragged herself there after being hit by a car.


While sick and hurting she gave birth to her pups. Her real family finds her at the rescue kennel and all is happy again. One of the construction workers who found her when she was protecting her puppies, asked if he could buy one of her puppies, and they of course gave him one.

    John - Thank you for your declaration. You make my day. I must say, I don't think I have ever seen a black setter. The Gordon setter is black, but with brown points. Kelly sounds gorgeous! ~J~

    Heavens Shar, don't be embarrassed. There is so much to read here on the Soup; well, I can't get to and see everything and don't know how anyone could. But I saw your other comment, and glad you got to and enjoyed the website. You are a special fan. Today I start the cat stories. Thank you for stopping by each day for a peek.

    Hi Catie - I'm delighted you are enjoying these stories. The author has them connected to PayPal Secure Payments now. The name of the books has changed to the "Without a Home, Inspiring and heartfelt tales of pet adoption." These are less expensive than the first "Think Adoption Series." The link to the site is: http://dnjbooks.com/pages/withoutahome.html -- The older version, (same stories and illustrations), can be found on Amazon.com. Just search for "Elaine Marlier" under Books.

    Once again, wonderful illustrations. Judith, this is so embarrassing, but I only now read your bio, and saw the link to your website. I am having a very busy day and evening, but I am very excited to go visit and will do so soon. Sorry it took me so long to notice. I have absolutely no excuse except I can be pretty out there at times! Thanks again for sharing. Love, Shar

    Dear Judith - Your drawings are priceless! I'm a huge animal lover - especially dogs! I have an all black setter named Kelly. She reminds me of your Lab! Your illustrations are so very detailed and lifelike. Stunning! I can safely aver - you're a talented poetess and artist...truly gifted on both levels. Peace always, John
