Marney-Rose Edge

Studio 270 | marneyroseedge.com

Marney-Rose was raised in New Zealand in the beautiful art deco seaside town of Napier. Born into a creative family; her dad was an avid amateur photographer, and her mum hand coloured photographs and dabbled in pastels.  Ever since being a child, Marney-Rose has loved creating beautiful things; always fascinated with colour.  A natural teacher, Marney-Rose has a following with her watercolour classes and workshops. She also teaches privately.

Capturing the beauty of her garden inspires creating beauty in her art. She cannot walk by a rose without pressing her nose into the silky petals and breathing deeply, praying she will be rewarded with a delightful fragrance. She loves capturing realism (sometimes bordering on surrealism) on a 2-dimensional surface. Making you think you can pick a flower, caress an egg or run your fingers through the fur of a well-loved pet, all with your eyes. She paints beauty with an air of romance.
