About Marielle


marielle ford artist photo headshot black and white bwMarielle has always been encouraged to express her creativity in one way or another; be it through drawing, taking photos or painting.

She discovered her love of painting after taking lessons (on a whim!) in folk and decorative art in Sydney. The techniques and skills that she learnt in these classes (among them; strokework, brush control and painting fine detail) provided a wonderful grounding for her future artistic endeavours.

A few years later she started taking lessons in watercolour painting — a medium that quickly captured her heart with its beauty, and her mind with its challenges!

Two years later she began entering her work in local art shows, the results of which can be found in the Art Show Results section of the website.

Marielle splits her time between the vibrancy of Sydney and the natural beauty of the South Coast of NSW, Australia. She is most often inspired by colour, nature and animals. She also enjoys dabbling in photography and sometimes uses these photos as the basis for her artwork. 

Marielle hopes that her work makes people smile and gives a feeling of happiness.
