She draws inspiration for her work from love, dreams, social justice, mental illness, and the process of exploring identity. She also attributes a large part of her artistic influence to dancing with her chosen family, Audre Lorde, writing her signature love letters, Nikki Giovanni, and crying while drinking wine in the shower. Marlee has performed with Bread and Puppet Theater and Sacred Circle Theatre Company.

Her poetry will appear in the Summer 2020 Issue of Sinister Wisdom, a multicultural lesbian literary & art journal.
