Marion’s work is observational, sourcing people, places and objects to form her compositions. She draws prolifically and works in oils and watercolours. Her subject matter is widespread but mainly figures, the built environment and coastal scenes. Portrait and other commissions are welcomed. Her work is signed ’tid’ – a family nickname from childhood.
Originally training at Cardiff College of Art, Marion studied also at the Sir John Cass School of Art, the Prince’s Drawing Studio and the Slade summer school. Over twenty years’ working life in the City gave her a close connection with Lloyd’s, where she exhibits annually. She has shown successfully in local and London galleries, in open exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery and the Chelsea Art Society, and has held solo exhibitions in UK and Australia. Marion is a member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art. She gives demonstrations and teaches workshops in Surrey and takes part in Surrey Artists Open Studios.
Marion worked for Bland Payne and Sedgwick and ran the Lloyd’s Art Group for many years.
