Spennymoor Town Council

Marina Morris



I am a professional artist and I have exhibited extensively and my paintings are in collections both nationally and internationally and I have undertaken prestigious commissions . I have also won many awards for my oil paintings, and I was also awarded a diploma with a high distinction for painting and drawing from the London college of art.

My preferred medium is oil but I also like to use soft pastel and also graphite. I am well known for my seascape paintings along with my country landscapes and also people portraits and pet portraits.
I was also invited to be a guest artist in residence in a Herefordshire major art event which proved to be so successful that I was invited back four years in succession
As far back as I can remember I have always loved to paint and draw and my first award was at the age of eleven when I won first prize in painting . I have won several awards since then and one was the silver art trophy for best oil painting in Pembroke Pembrokeshire
