Hi, I'm Marnie and I'm a mixed media artist from Hampshire. My work currently focuses on the experience of the body, this often includes exploring "flesh" as material and looking at the processes within the body. I work predominantly through mixed media soft sculpture and writing.
Throughout my practice, I enjoy learning new skills and how to make things from scratch. This has resulted in using techniques such as woodwork, papermaking, natural dying, punch needlework, weaving, felting, sewing knitting, ceramics, upholstery and more. For me, the learning process and the time and effort that goes into the work are as essential as the finished piece itself. It means that as the artwork grows, so do I as an artist.
Having studied Fine Art at Cardiff School of Art and Design, I am now back in Hampshire working as a full-time Artist. For any enquiries about my work don't hesitate to ask, you can contact me via email (preferred) or Instagram.
