Marilyn Austin - Arts Canterbury

Marilyn Austin


Marilyn is an artist with a passion for rich colours, texture and works with strong visual impact.

She is known for her semi abstract landscapes, abstract forms and cityscapes. Many layers of acrylic paint are used in the works and then acrylic glazes are applied to give the rich vibrant depth of colour.

“I believe that an artwork must speak from the heart and uplift the viewer making them want to return to look again… to see something new and inviting. If I can achieve this then I feel that I have succeeded.”

Marilyn’s paintings are in collections in New Zealand and overseas and can be viewed in Christchurch at Artbox Gallery 1/16 Loftus Street, Papanui or on her website.
