Marie Vorobieff-Stebelska (1892- May 4, 1984) was the artist of Russian-Polish origins. The name Marevna was given to her after a Russian fairy sea princess by the writer Maxim Gorky, whom she met in Capri in Italy. Subsequently, this became her signature artistic name. An audacious yet charming and high spirited character, Marevna travelled Europe extensively and was one of the first women artists, achieving remarkable blends of pointillism and structure in her work. Marevna was initially a portraitist but embraced Cubism, partially due to the influences of her relationship with the world famous Mexican painter/muralist Diego Rivera with whom she also had a daughter, Marika.

Marevna spent her mature years residing with Marika in England and lived at Athelhampton House from 1948 to 1956.
