Marion Griese is a Canadian abstract painter and arts educator from St. Catharines, Ontario. She completed a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Toronto in 1992 and after travelling and working in Europe, studied Jewellery Art and Design for two years at Vancouver Community College.
“For me, the act of painting is always a journey. It is my love of arranging shapes of colour and orchestrating a composition that sings, that propels the journey forward and what I find most satisfying about the work I do. The hope is always that the painting I create will breathe life into a space, in the same way that music can colour a room. Although the results are different with each painting, my work is always rooted in my deep appreciation for the natural world around me.”
Marion’s paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions nationally and can be found in private collections in Canada, the US, Germany and Australia.
