About Marion Rose

Recently passed on in the winter of 2011, Marion's work continues to be shared as she would have wanted.

Remaining Originals may be found here.

Her trademark use of exciting color and strong expressive brushwork has collectors coming back for more after they experience the joy of living with her originals in their living or working environment, and sharing their passion with others.
Marion's choice of subject matter is a versatile mix of her love for animals and a passion for travel. Plein air studies or studio creations provide an exciting mix for all to enjoy.

Marion brings hands on experience to her art. Her childhood years were spent shadowing her father and uncles who were avid outdoorsmen, and helping out at the racetrack every chance she had. The next 14 yrs saw her tending to over 300 sheep, rounding up 60 herefords, and chasing the rodeos as well as 70ish horses all over the hills of the Moose Mountains in Saskatchewan. A move to BC 18 years ago satisfied a long time urge to live in the real mountains and enjoy a mild climate. In BC she created her own successful commercial art & design company for 10 years, until the urge for fine art could wait no longer. Now she paints full time all those things she knows and loves so well, and regularly sends work to collectors all over the globe.
Marion had been an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists for many years, winning a few Awards of Excellence along the way.

'I love historic things, which led to a show of my work at the Moose Jaw Art Museum depicting many of their famous buildings and the city's unique character. It also inspired two trips to Tuscany in the past four years, resulting in over 300 paintings of the wonderful charm of Italy. I have traveled to Montana and Yellowstone several times to see wildlife, historic wagon treks and ghost towns. I've also been to three workshops in the mountains south of Livingston, MT to study with great artists such as Bill Reese, Robert Bateman, Jack Hines, sculptor Veryl Goodnight and many others. Workshops in Vancouver with Robert Genn, Neil Patterson, Michael O'Toole and four years of printmaking at UCFV in BC round out my formal art education.

All but two of the stories in this, Ernest Finney’s third collection of short fiction, are set in California: in the San Francisco Bay area, the Sierras, the San Joaquin Valley. His diverse characters—a professional wrestler, a bridge prodigy, a wilderness guide, goldseekers, illegal immigrants—are moved by chance events of time and place, finding themselves plunged into precarious situations that demand an immediate choice. “For thirty years Ernest Finney has been one of the best fiction writers in the country.

Accepted Into New Abstract Artist Galllery

Chilliwack, BC - April 17th, 2011

Color surprises, bold texture and generous paint have always drawn collectors to my work, and now the paintings are bigger than ever before. The abstract spirit of every subject is coming through more clearly with spontaneous gestures that involve my whole body. It’s like a dance before the canvas, and the surface is coming alive!
