Marion Meyers

Encaustic Painter and Quilter


Artist Statement

I’m inspired by the whimsical colour combinations and strong lines I see in both urban and rural landscapes. These inspirations may lead to representational or abstract work. 

About the Artist 

    Marion 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. She 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, while Marion continued in classes and took up learning the skills of quilting, fabric dyeing, mono prints and painting in encaustic. She is represented at the Scugog Arts Space in Port Perry.

She’d learned about encaustic in school by studying the Fayum portraits and 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. Marion has taught numerous beginner classes in encaustic in her studio and usually demonstrate during studio tours.
