Colour, rhythm, form, the landscape which surrounds us, the glow in the early morning, the heat in mid January, the wind, as it whips over the mountain, these are but some of  moments which inspire my work. Painting ‘en plein air’ or in the studio, I take my reference from nature. Passionate about painting, I graduated from UNISA with a BAFA and continued at Wits to do a postgraduate diploma in painting which I passed with distinction. Since then I  participate in many group exhibitions and I have had a number of solo shows. I also have a stand at the Decorex and Homemakers show in Cape town twice a year. There have been several awards as well as being a featured artist in the South African Artist Magazine in October 2018. My work has found homes all over the world. I continue to travel and to discover ways to present my vision, a never ending journey of discovery. Do join me and feel free to contact me on, or follow me on Instagram marion.cross.33
