About me

Location Red Deer, Alberta, Canada
Introduction Marianne was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and developed her interest in art while still in elementary school. She was exposed to various media but quickly focused her interest in painting--first oils, then watercolors. Her works are displayed in many art shows, galleries and private shows. She now does metal framing, adult/kids classes, and photography also. ABOUT THE ART: Most of my early work was of watercolor landscapes, being quite photorealistic. Much of my work has been inspired from my own photos, and I try to capture these memories in paint. Recent experimentation with acrylics, mixed media and different styles is an exciting learning process! I'm inspired by a variety of subject matter, but my travels and people in any setting are among my favorite subjects to paint. I strive to depict their story and personalities with paint on paper. My artwork is a result of my personal impression of nature and people's activities, and I trust it will evoke an emotion in the viewer also, and through the pieces be able to catch a glimpse of where I've been and what I've seen.
Interests Visual arts, music, traveling, trying and learning new things.
