My Story

Hi and thank you for visiting my site. I am honoured to have this opportunity to share my art with you.

Artist Statement

I create vibrant, colourful, organic alcohol ink and acrylic paintings with music playing a large role in my creative process by influencing the fluidity and movement of my art. I work in layers, scraping and blending until I feel the final result represents my intention, which is often inspired by the memories the music evokes.

My paintings are created intuitively without a plan other than my colour choices. I begin each work with looser, cooler shapes, and as the layers are added I find myself moving to a warmer palette to finish each piece, mirroring my road from darkness to light.

While painting I experience freedom in creative expression, a release of my inner critic, and each creation leads me further on my path towards gentleness and joy!

Artist Life

As for my personal life, I am wife to a man I have known for almost 40 years who had a massive stroke in 2008 and currently resides in long term care. We have two young adult sons, who are exploring the world each in their own way.

My daily company consists of Jewel, an eleven year-old mixed breed dog I adopted in 2016, and two cats, Wynston and Lucy, who keep me entertained! I am also the owner of an off the track thoroughbred horse, Onyx, who brings me much joy and many life lessons giving me the opportunity to discover a deeper level of self.

Thank you for spending time here.

With love and light,

Marianne xoxo
