Marilyn Townsend - Artist in mixed media
Welcome to my website.
I love all aspects of nature from the sea to the countryside, whether the cooler colours of England where I grew up, or the intense light and colour of Australia. Much of my inspiration comes from camping experiences in the Australian Outback, underwater scenes from snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef and the Bays of the Mornington Peninsula Victoria, where I now live. Texture and colour are two of my passions and I am forever trying new ideas and techniques to achieve celebration of the wonderful natural world.
My work is largely mixed media, incorporating acrylic paint with added fabrics, freehand machining and textural elements, in the form of framed originals and prints, fashion including jewellery, decor designs and greeting cards.
