Alder Creek Studio



Artist Statement

" My world is not smooth, polished or unmarked. Likewise, my canvases feature created or actual surface textures describing nature's continuous change. "

Artist profile

Originally from Kent County, Marion Anderson now makes her home and studio in New Dundee. She studied Visual Arts at Windsor University later completing a Masters of Education at University Western Ontario, London.

Her diverse portfolio shows expertise in a wide range of mediums including watercolour, acrylic and oil painting as well as the ease with which she moves from florals to landscapes in subject matter. This fluidity is due to the artist's thirty plus years as a Visual Arts teacher/department head.

Anderson's unique mixed media technique is constantly evolving over time. She works in series, completing a suite of paintings to express a concept or idea. Heavily textured, each piece is rendered in a limited palette, suggesting a unique visual experience for the viewer's interpretation. One exploration simply leads to another!
