About the artist

Marion's art career spans over 30 years and beyond. Passionate about watercolour and experimenting with this medium, Marion also loves nature and her surroundings, so it comes as no surprise that her subject matter depicts birds, wildlife and nature. Marion has exhibited in many art exhibitions over the years and owned her own gallery in Gladstone, Central Queensland. She has been teaching her techniques in classes and workshops over the last 10 years and loves passing on knowledge about the magic world of painting with watercolour adding in mixed media and ink to bring her work to life. www.artbymarionhughes.com
