True Colours

Having grown up in Germany, my husband and I moved to Australia with our two young children 19 years ago. The landscape here is so unique and dramatically different than in Germany, and has been a constant source of inspiration for me, even before I started painting.

I started painting in 2015 as a creative outlet. I had never formally painted before, but as my children were growing up and becoming independent I realised that it was time for me too, to reconnect with myself and explore my own passions. I am inspired by the intense colours of the land, trees, and ocean, and so letting it out on the canvas has been very therapeutic for me.

I work as a nurse, which can be very demanding. Painting has allowed me to explore another side of myself, slow down, and to connect with nature in a very intimate and special way. I especially love the ability to take what is real, and make it more fantastical, or abstract, using colour.

I have participated in various workshops over the years, but my "style" evolves from canvas to canvas. I don't focus on formal techniques or even have much of a particular vision for the end result, I prefer to let the colour take over and let the painting come to life in its own way.


I am the proud owner of three of Marion's amazing works of art. Each painting takes me on a journey with the exciting colours. Each picture has a personality, which talks to you and expresses what you keep deep inside your mind. It sparks a memory of something so powerful in your mind. I'm so happy and grateful for my paintings and will forever cherish them.
We needed something colourful to brighten up the living room of our newly built house and had seen some of Marion's paintings. We asked Marion if she could paint quite a large colourful beach painting, with a deep blue ocean. No picture was provided, we left the imagination up to the artist. Our painting turned out absolutely beautiful and we were both stunned with the finished art work. It is exactly what we wanted and has a prime spot in our lounge room and we love it!
