Medium: Pastels and Scratchboard
I am Marianne Harris, also known as Meb. I experimented with color pencils, charcoal and oil paints, until I found my way to the pastel medium. After taking a workshop from my mentor, Lesley Harrison, I was hooked on pastels and have never looked back. Animals are my passion, and are generally the focus of my art. When I choose a subject, I look for a whimsical character, somewhat playful and/or slightly mischievous. What I love most about pastels is how they allow me to create soft, realistic paintings. The icing on the cake is experiencing the joy my paintings bring to the recipient.
Marianne is always available for commissions.
