    I bring my light to the world one painting at a time.

    Hi and thank you for visiting my site. I am honoured to have this opportunity to share my art with you.

    Artist Statement

    I create vibrant, colourful, organic alcohol ink and acrylic paintings with music playing a large role in my creative process by influencing the fluidity and movement of my art. I work in layers, scraping and blending until I feel the final result represents my intention, which is often inspired by the memories the music evokes.

    When creating with alcohol inks there is limited control as I allow the inks to flow on the paper often gently guiding them with blowing through a straw or using an air compressor. I often create in a few layers protecting each layer so as not to affect the lower layer. Many of my alcohol inks are adhered to a cradled wood canvas after which I coat the painting with resin for a hard and glossy shine, allowing the colours to pop.

    For my acrylic paintings are created intuitively without a plan other than my colour choices. I begin each work with looser, cooler shapes, and as the layers are added I find myself moving to a warmer palette to finish each piece, mirroring my road from darkness to light.

    While painting I experience freedom in creative expression, a release of my inner critic, and each creation leads me further on my path towards gentleness and joy!

    Artist Life

    As for my personal life, I am wife to a man I have known for almost 40 years who had a massive stroke in 2008 and currently resides in long-term care. We have two young adult sons, who are exploring the world each in their own way.

    My daily company consists of Jewel, an eleven year-old mixed breed dog I adopted in 2016, and two cats, Wynston and Lucy, who keep me entertained! I am also the owner of an off-the-track thoroughbred horse, Onyx, who brings me much joy and many life lessons giving me the opportunity to discover a deeper level of self.

    Please always feel free to contact. You can also get in touch with me through Instagram and Facebook.

    Thank you for spending time here.

    With love and light,

    Marianne xoxo
