Marion has been painting seriously in oils since 2003 after experimentation with watercolours, pastels and Japanese ink sketching. Since Marion attended an Oil and acrylics paint course with Dale Elliot in Villiersdorp, her life has changed and she has come to the realization that consistency and regular application is as important as talent. Marion's great love of art finds her visiting galleries and art museums not only locally but also overseas where the great institutions such as the Louvre has greatly inspired her.
A talented photographer, Marion uses this talent as an aide to her painting, capturing though the photograph the ambience and "feel" of a particular scene. The wonderful traditional dwellings of Africa especially fascinate Marion as do the faces and activities of rural folk and communities.
