Marion, a self-taught artist for whom the interest in drawing and painting began as a child has continued throughout her adult life. When she retired, knowing she now had time to get “stuck in” to her artwork, she joined Newark Art Club which with its weekly meetings, periodic workshops and demonstrations gives her a lot of pleasure as well as developing her talent.

She paints mostly in watercolours, but sometimes in pastel and polychromos pencils and her favourite subjects tend to be flowers and landscapes and occasional animals and birds. She is also a member of the SAA, the Society for All Artists.
