Marion Elmes

Painting and open garden

Welcome to my eclectic artistic world:
Original watercolours, paintings and prints
Contemporary and period family beach scenes, full of fun
Playful curious creatures, with a touch of magic
Dramatic rock and cliff formations
Trawler sterns and hulls, full of colour
Seascapes and Exmoor landscapes
Marine pollution poems

From studying Textile Design at Winchester Art College in the 1960s, I embarked on an ongoing journey of Watercolour Painting in Pembrokeshire, the Arabian Gulf, Gloucestershire, and now in inspirational world of North Devon.

I also worked as an Illustrator for an Arabic magazine in Qatar in the 1970s and was an Adult Education Art Tutor in Cheltenham before moving to North Devon in 1999.

My paintings are held in private collections in the UK and worldwide.
