Marion has been part of Tuesday Studios since 2014. Starting the day with a black coffee, Marion is a social and central participant leading our end of session reflection each week by asking everyone in turn how their day was. Marion works across a range of media from drawing, painting, animation, filmmaking, and photography. As well as engaging in collaborative activities, she loves working independently often creating a stack of drawings in the morning which she paints over in the afternoon, using a range of colours, often with a large brush and plenty of water. She also enjoys creating self-portraits using video projections, painting directly onto the projected surface with a loose gestural action.
Marion is most enlivened by her work when it has a personal connection, often involving family members and childhood memories with her parents, notably in her film ‘My Dad used to fish at the end of the Pier’ which was shown in an exhibition, which took the film as its title, at the Pier Hub Hastings, midway through the pier’s renovation in 2015.
