Welcome to Ashby Art !
Ashby Art is Marie South's website and some of the work shown is available for purchase. Please use the contact form if you wish to purchase an item.
Marie enjoys going from an initial idea, to sketches to compose a picture and then moving on to paint, felt or print it. She finds it very satisfying to see an idea come to fruition in a frame!. Her inspiration comes from in her surroundings, particularly the Derbyshire countryside and the small village which she lives in, near Ashby de la Zouch. A wide variety of countryside animals and plants influence her work. Marie is also a keen photographer and she finds that photography, printmaking, feltmaking and painting complement each other. Printing and photography has extended her interest into landscapes, perspective and architectural forms. This year 2019, Marie has successfully entered some of her work into juried national exhibitions as well as continuing to support her local art clubs' exhibitions. Some of Marie's prints and felted pictures can be seen at the Banks Mills Open studios event in Derby ( 22 to 24 November 2019). From 1 to 21 2019 November Marie is holding a joint art exhibition with Larry,her husband, at Sharpes pottery, Swadlincote and then at Burton on Trent Library artspace from 25 Nov to 9 December .
Marie had had great fun taking the photographs and making the pictures and prints on this web site. She hope you enjoy looking at them.
