Marianne was born in England but spent much of her childhood in Malaysia. The stunning scenery and abundance of exotic animals and plants heightened her love of nature and keen interest in drawing and painting. Marianne settled in Canada in 1980 and lives in Schomberg, Ontario.
Marianne is a full time artist and a sought after art instructor. Her stunning paintings of flowers, landscapes and wildlife have been exhibited in many juried exhibitions in which she has received numerous awards. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, U.S., England, Australia, South Africa and Malaysia. Many of her florals and landscapes have also been published.
For me painting is a celebration of the endless beauty to be found in the natural world and an expression of my concern for its preservation. My hope is that my work will inspire in the viewer an appreciation of natureís gifts and contribute to a greater collective environmental consciousness so that we may tread lightly on this earth of ours.
