Mariette Voke – Artist

Mariette Voke – Artist

I paint every day in a studio shed in our rambling garden in the Forest of Dean.

My move to painting from a career in large scale garden ceramics, was originally led by a love of colours and evocative names on paint tubes.

My paintings explore memories and recollection through clothing and everyday objects. Although my still lives are often on a large scale, I love to focus in on details, enjoying painting small, often overlooked things, buttons, scraps of lettering, pins, shells and feathers.

I mainly paint in oils, stretching my own canvases in a traditional way using raw linen, fixed with tacks and sized with rabbit skin glue. My watercolours use the contrast of precise pencil drawing and a loose and fluid colour.

I sell through exhibitions, and locally in Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.

Mariette will be here with exhibiting alongside her partner, Nigel Lambert on:

Friday 16th November, 4.00 – 8.00pm and again on

Saturday 17th November, 11.00 – 4.00pm.
