Marion moved to the Isle of Skye in 2008 to set up her studio overlooking the Minch and dedicate more time to painting and making. Marion spent the 1990s in London working as a non-fiction editor and copywriter at the book publishers Batsford and Dorling Kindersley, going to art classes in the evenings and at weekends. In 2002 Marion started writing the Painting section of About.com (part of the New York Times Group) and is now well-known for her online teaching.
She has paintings in private collections in the UK, USA, South Africa, Australia and across Europe. “I work in a painterly and expressive style, leaning towards abstraction.My art is inspired by the spectacular landscape in which I live. On sunny days I like to take my sketchbook for a walk, using what I’ve seen to create larger paintings back in my studio. On wet, windswept days I like to watch the waters of the Minch, the every-changing light and colours. My aim is to convey something of what I’m seeing and feeling in a particular spot.”
