The soft pastel medium Marion works with is used with skill and her choice of colours epitomises the New Zealand summer. Her paintings fall into the Impressionist category - mostly landscapes and seascapes - to which she occasionally adds the female nude form very cleverly emphasising the contours and curves of both.
Marion was born in 1956 in Cambridge, New Zealand. She was Educated at Papatoetoe High School and attended a Graphic Design Course at A.T.I. Auckland, New Zealand.
Marion started painting over 35 years ago. Her technical strength lies in pastels and she is constantly exploring new ways of using this medium. She has been exhibiting for over 26 years and has had 18 solo exhibitions, 5 joint shows and won 8 awards.
