A full time teacher until recently, she worked for several years as a children’s tutor at Glasgow School of Art and has written and illustrated art educational packs for Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Museums.

Marion has exhibited in various locations in 2017 including solo at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall,  the Cass Art Glasgow Gallery and with groups at The Stirling Smith Gallery and The Lillie Gallery. She was asked to exhibit as a guest artist in the “Lines of Thought “exhibition at The Lighthouse, to celebrate and mark the bicentenary of the birth of Glasgow architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson.

Her work is a part of several private collections including Glasgow and other Scottish locations, The Lake District, London and Australia.

Marion creates art inspired by the architectural design of the city’s magnificent buildings. Using photographs taken with her ‘sketchbook’ camera of iconic Glasgow buildings, art and architecture merge in her work and this has resulted in a quirky, kaleidoscopic, 3D effect collages. She also paints in watercolour and gouache to produce detailed designs using building features as the source.

A keen swimmer and member of the Arlington Baths Club, she is delighted and excited at being given the opportunity to exhibit her work at the club. She has created new bespoke collages illustrating some of the details of the magnificent Category A listed Victorian building along with a selection of small artworks inspired by the architectural facade and interior features. These will be displayed for the first time in the December exhibition as well as collages inspired by the work of Charles Rennie MacIntosh including Glasgow School of Art, Scotland Street School and Alexander Thomson’s Holmwood House with collaged details from Strathbungo tenements and townhouses.
