Marlene believes that making art is an enjoyable life-long learning activity. She works mainly in acrylic, pastel and watercolour, sometimes combined, creating personal interpretations and impressions of the world around her.

Her artwork often consists of reoccurring themes which may become ongoing series, developing over time.Find out more »
