About me

MariAn was born in Dublin but grew up and was formally trained in England where she gained her B. A. in Fine Art.

MariAn's paintings are mainly of the beautiful scenes which surround her home on Portugal's Silver Coast, namely the lagoon at Foz do Arelho, the stunning local beaches, the beautiful walled, medieval  town of Óbidos and the old parts of Caldas da Rainha.

MariAn's ability to capture the light, atmosphere and different moods evoked by this beautiful area result in colourful and light filled paintings.
