About the Artist

When the COVID-19 pandemic first began at the start of 2020, Marianne had only briefly delved into the world of art. Prior to painting, she often wrote amazing poems with her Mother Meliana as part of the Rapid Prompting Method (RPM) she follows. Both Marianne and Meliana travelled all the way to the US to learn this special method developed by Soma Mukhopadhyay. Meliana says not everyone believes in this but for those who do, it can be life changing. Meliana’s devotion is a great part of Marianne’s creative process.

Since joining the art program, Marianne has made an enormous amount of new artwork. Her pieces often reflect short personal stories and life experience, with many interpretations and meanings.

Seeing Wonder

The painting establishes the way I think. Walled but free, ventured but watched, taken but wild, teenage but wise.
