About Marianne Sturtridge
My artwork seeks to convey a range of human feelings from community to alienation, sometimes with a religious, mythological or fantasy theme.
While teaching children with physical disabilities I explored themes on attitudes towards disability, illness and censorship.
The foundation of my work is drawing, often evolving into mixed media. My painting style ranges from traditional oil and watercolour painting to experimental work in a wide range of materials including collage, computer-based art, bas-relief and ceramics.
