Marion has a BA(Hons) Degree in Fine Art. Her background is in Arts education. Marion’s move to the south coast gave her the impetus for a new style of painting and a new raft of work. She paints full time out of her studio in Lymington. Local sources of inspiration include masts and rigging, coastal birds and the sea. A long-standing passion for painting in oils has been augmented through experimentation with cold wax which 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. Her work encompasses two main subjects on different scales.
