In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with artists Marianne van den Broek to talk about her amazing sand sculptures found around town in Key West.
We talk about how Marianne began her journey as a sand sculptor, and how she turned a “summer job” into a passion project with a full-time residence at Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort.
