OUR CURRENT FEATURED artist is Marianne la Cour of Colours on Grey, exhibiting a range of original abstract works on paper and canvas.
A Glen Innes-based painter, Marianne is also a prolific ceramist, card maker and creative tutor. Book now for her watercolour workshop at the Shed on June 24.
“I create colourful abstract paintings inspired by the landscape around me as well as rustic Nordic inspired ceramic wares,” she says.
“My enjoyment of working with paper and fabric and incorporating different textures into my paintings has led me into creations of versatility – including collages and cards.
“I grew up in Denmark, spending most of my childhood holidays either on my grandparents’ farm or in the lovely town of Menton on the Mediterranean south coast of France.
“I moved to Australia in my thirties to pursue a lifelong dream of living a creative life in relaxing and tranquil (or as we Danes would say ‘hyggelige’ ) surroundings.”
