About Me

Marianne Harris

Artist, Instructor & Photographer


Marianne was born in Edmonton Alberta, and developed her interest in art while still in elementary school. She started with a general exposure to various types of art media, but quickly focused her interests on painting, first in oils, then watercolours, and now adding acrylics and mixed media. Over the years many artists have inspired and influenced her, and she still enjoys a variety of styles and subject matter which is represented in her artwork.

Her works have sold across the country and abroad, being displayed in many art shows, with various art clubs and associations, as well as in private shows. Marianne’s works are available in several galleries as well. Commissioned works are done as requested and as time permits.

Along with high realism still done occasionally, she has a curiosity for creative and ongoing experimentation. Being a prolific photographer, much of her work has been inspired from her own photos of places, things, and people she has seen. She is comfortable with a wide range of subject matter, but often prefers combining abstract with some realism superimposed.
Her work is the interpretation of scenes, subjects, and feelings that have been impressed upon her, and she trusts this will resonate with each viewer so that they in turn can catch a glimpse of how this passion translates from the heart to the art.
