ABOUT MARION DRUMMOND

Since early childhood, I have had a passion for wildlife and the natural world.  As an artist, I strive to capture light, mood and movement. My subject matter is always real and studied, from the number of petals on a flower to the atmosphere and presence of a sitter. I have been painting professionally for thirty years and exhibit largely in the UK, although I have also sold in Germany and the United States.
