Marion Meyers – Encaustic Painter & Quilter

Artist Statement

Whimsical colour combinations and strong lines in urban and rural landscapes inspire representational and abstract paintings and quilts.

About the Artist

I took private oil painting classes as a child, then completed the visual arts program at Georges Vanier S.S., and courses at OCA in the early 70’s. I continued to paint, attend life drawing classes and sold re-worked antique quilts & original work at a gallery in Yorkville. A business career took over, but I continued in classes and took up learning the skills of quilting, fabric dyeing, mono prints and painting in encaustic.

I’d learned about encaustic in school by studying the Fayum portraits and have taken extensive courses with Andrea Bird at Meta4 in Port Perry and at The Hive in Alton, with Susan Fisher at Haliburton School of the Arts and with both Cynthia Winika and Lisa Pressman at R&F Encaustics in New York. I’ve taught numerous beginner classes in encaustic in my studio and always demonstrate during studio tours.

My quilting journey restarted at the Quilters Cupboard in Uxbridge and I’ve attended many courses in Canada and the US with professional quilters. I teach advanced quilting courses and lecture on quilting at guilds.
