Marie is a Czech-born painter and printmaker whose association with Lloyd’s goes back to 1980’s and 90’s when she was a member of the IT department of Leslie and Godwin insurance brokers. She has since completed Fine Art degree at University for the Creative Arts, practiced as a studio artist at Greenham Arts Centre in Newbury and is currently a member of Spike Print Studios in Bristol.
Primarily a landscape artist, Marie’s work is a response to the places she visits. Preferring to work in plein air she looks for spatial drama, aiming to capture the essence of the surrounding landscape which she sees as a series of interrelated shapes and colours. Her printmaking and painting processes are free and intuitive with each step taking on life of its own.
Having been active on the art scene in Surrey and the Thames Valley area, Marie’s recent move to Bristol has opened new possibilities as well as providing her with the opportunity of joining the lively art scene of the city.
