Marie's beautiful floral canvases are the product of a lifelong love of painting combined with an in-depth knowledge of plants gained from her mother, a keen gardener. Whilst she began her working life as a nurse, her passion for art was a continual companion. In 2000 a move to Cornwall allowed Marie to begin painting full time.
From her studio overlooking Portmellon Bay she observes the ever changing fauna that frames the sea and landscape. Often working at dawn, Marie revels in the calm solitude of the early hours. Her paintings are multi-layered with deep textured elements created with a palette knife and fingers - a very messy process! The result is work deeply connected to the beauty of the English countryside.
We show Marie's work in mixed shows throughout the year. Join our mailing list for advance details.
