“I believe that true identity is found in creative activity springing from within. It is found when one loses oneself.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
If you think you hear music when you look at the beautiful work of Ottawa’s Marianne H Neilsen, you aren’t alone.
Music is a significant source of inspiration to Marianne, who explains that as she paints, “I feel as though I’m dancing amongst the stars.”
Like dancing, painting is a physical process for Marianne. She pushes and pulls and scrapes and layers and works the canvas, using vibrant, juicy colours to express a wealth of emotions.
We are big fans of Marianne’s work and are delighted to welcome her to the Herringbone family!
