Marney has always felt a deep connection with flowers. In her paintings, she seeks to reveal the essence and energy of every flower she paints. She also uses the translucence of the petals to paint light itself. Watercolour, with its underlying glow and its clear, transparent colour, is the perfect medium to allow her to capture the almost tangible presence of light.
Marney is a senior signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, has won many awards (local, national and international), and has juried numerous exhibitions in Victoria and Nanaimo. She is featured in 3 books, including Artists of British Columbia, Volume 3, and in various magazines, including International Artist and the French Pratique des Arts. Marney has taught art classes for over 15 years and shows through Winchester Galleries.
