About me

Marion

Welcome to my site where you can browse my artworks and the collaborative creations of friends and colleagues. My passion for art took off in the year 2000 while attending a ‘life drawing’ summer workshop in Kurow and I haven’t looked back. I have a background in commercial print, where my occupation was that of ‘colour stripper’, a term associated with photolithography. This skill has been superseded by digital technologies and so, when looking for a new direction and making the decision to attend art school, I found myself gravitating to the Print Studio.

I love all things to do with Print, however my art practice also includes sculpture, charcoal making, photography and curating. My research relates to the human impact on the environment and I look for experimental methods of art making with sustainability and recycling in mind. I also enjoy working on collaborative projects and do custom printing.

I live on a 25 hectare farm in the beautiful coastal settlement of Purakaunui in Otago, NZ. I lecture in the Print Studio (Print Laboratory) at the Dunedin School of Art, curate the Otago Polytechnic Art Collection and have various administrator and marketing roles in the Dunedin School of Art.
