About the Artist
Marianne was born in England but spent much of her childhood in Malaysia. The stunning scenery and abundance of exotic animals and plants heightened her love of nature and keen interest in drawing and painting. As a teenager, her artwork was selling in local galleries and department stores. Marianne settled in Canada in 1980 and lives in Schomberg, Ontario.
As a full-time artist and a sought after art instructor Marianne is never without her sketchbook or camera, always looking for new subject matter for her stunning closeup paintings of flowers, ethereal landscapes and abstract images. Marianne also enjoys taking on commissions of subject matter that she may not otherwise paint. Some of these have been commissioned for publishing purposes and her work has been licensed for Giclée reproductions, needlepoint designs, greeting cards and fine porcelain.
Marianne’s art education in England has been furthered by studies at The Haliburton School of the Arts and courses and workshops with many respected artists.
Marianne’s work has been exhibited in many juried exhibitions in which she has received numerous awards. The most recent are three Best in Show awards, Best Watercolour in Show, The Franklin Carmichael Award, The Marianne Crone Award, 2nd prize in the COAA Juried Show, Juror’s Choice, Honourable Mentions and several People’s Choice awards.
Her work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, U.S, and around the world.
