Marie Mason, has been creating art of one form or another for over 50 years. After a fated painting trip during which she discovered that she could represent the landscape before her in an accurate and expressive way.
Marie started as a painter, but after discovering Margaret Preston’s lino prints and the work of Claude Flight and co, she was drawn to Printmaking. Initially it was a convenient art form – one that you could do at the dining room table – but there was always a work in progress.
Marie’s strongest passion and best work is in her representations of the Australian landscape, for which she uses the reduction lino method, so as to have colour and diversity of tone in the work.
She studies the landscape to pick out scenes within it that best describe it, and really enjoys the process in which a vision in her mind turns into a print on paper – and how, by some magic, the final product is often better than the vision! Suffice to say, she is completely addicted to Printmaking.
