Marion has a BA(Hons) Degree in Fine Art. Her background is in Arts education. As Director of Arts Specialism in a designated Arts college she led innovation in the visual and performing arts, establishing an on-going programme of residencies for professional artists.
Since moving from Berkshire to Lymington a year ago, Marion has set up a studio in her garden where she now paints full time. Diverse local sources of inspiration offer new subjects, such as masts and rigging, mudflats and the sea. It is the beginning of an exciting journey for her. She is passionate about painting in oils but recent experimentation with cold wax has opened up new ways of creating texture in her work.
Composition and abstraction are challenges Marion relishes and her paintings are generally constructed from more than one viewpoint. Marion’s photos form a reference bank and she is currently preoccupied with the ever-changing light effects on aspects of the coastline.
