An experienced painter, Marianne is showing both still-life oil paintings from the 1980’s and recent pastels of the Devonshire countryside.

Patterns of light and the way it reflects and casts shadows is the attraction she finds interesting in both subjects.

Marianne has work in private collections and had numerous solo exhibitions and mixed group exhibitions in London, Bath and the wider South West region. Her most recent show (26th May - 7th July 2018), being ‘Dreams of Everyday Objects’ at White Moose, a contemporary fine art gallery based in Barnstaple, which brought together work from Marianne, London based artist, Jane Hoodless and Columbian artists, ‘Mangle’.

Directions: If driving, The Spinney is at the lower end of Park Lane in Newport. It’s a narrow road and The Spinney is on the left, just past the ‘no through road’ sign. Parking in the venue’s driveway.
If walking through Rock Park from centre of Barnstaple and train station, there’s a pedestrian entrance onto Park Lane and The Spinney is just up the lane on the right hand side.

Keiron Leach will be a guest artist at Marianne's studio during Art Trek: Keiron takes inspiration from the North Devon landscape with its changing weather and light conditions. He gained a degree in Fine Art at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in Farnham, and has exhibited regularly ever since in galleries across the country. His work is greatly influenced by art history, particularly on English lanscape painting. He also takes inspiration from East Asian painting and calligraphic traditions. Keiran works using ink wash, which enables him to create a range of textural and visual difference, from subtle shifting tones to deeper impasto-like effects.
