About the Artist - click to expand

Brisbane Artist

I paint by mixing oil paint, linseed oil and artist’s turpentine into squeeze containers and spraying the contents directly onto the canvas. The paint mixture is then moved and flowed together, resulting in vivid colours with visual depth. 

It is a wonderfully exciting and inspirational method of painting, as I see the canvas come to life in front of my eyes.

I paint from the heart and love to share my passion with others. My colours and style are bright and flowing with my main medium being oils, as oil paint blends so beautifully on the canvas.

I have been painting, drawing, scribbling for the last 58 years. My dad (Grand Jack) has been my inspiration. I still remember tracing the outlines of Australian animals that my dad had painted on my bedroom walls when I was very young. This early experience provided me with the desire to express myself through my art.

I hope you enjoy my paintings as much as I loved creating them.

I cannot praise Marianne highly enough. Her paintings are spectacular. I ended up buying two! She gave freely of her time, talking me through all her different works. She is so passionate and her energy is so obvious in her work. Her works are so vibrant in real life. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I wish her all the best.

You Wait
He brings you beautiful flowers. He says he’s sorry and it won’t happen again. You wait. The tension builds again until the yelling, name-calling and pain begins. A quick slap and fist in the face, hair pulled viciously. Blood, fear, anger, shame.
He brings you beautiful flowers. He says he’s sorry. It won’t happen again. You wait.

"Thank you so much for the lovely painting - I am absolutely thrilled with it. It is made to hang overlooking my kitchen (and I have wasted no time in hanging it!). It adds such colour and character to what was a dull, boring wall.
"Your interpretation of the dynamics between sisters is fabulous and I know my sisters (with whom I am extremely close) will love it also. Many a wine is enjoyed in this room - now the proof is on the wall!
"Kindest regards and all best wishes, Karen"
