Marlene Lowden - somewhere far away
somewhere far away 48” x 48” oil on canvas, framed
Marlene Lowden grew up in an ocean side town on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, just outside of Vancouver, Canada. After several years in television broadcasting, she resumed her lifelong interest in painting, drawing, and photography. She draws from her experience in television and video production, applying to canvas similar principles of composition and storytelling. While working and raising her two daughters, she studied with a range of instructors learning watercolour, acrylic, and oil painting techniques. She was recently named one of “28 contemporary Canadian artists to know” by Create Magazine . She is honoured to be included in the All She Makes curated artist directory and the 4th Edition of their magazine and Art Seen Magazine based in the UK. Her work appears in private and public collections in Canada and internationally. She lives and works in her hometown of Gibsons, BC.
