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. She is a late bloomer venturing into painting in her forties but has an inexhaustible passion for it. A natural teacher, Marney-Rose has a following with her watercolour classes and workshops. She teaches privately and for various Art Associations.
After a career spanning almost 30 years in the Graphic Arts/Printing industry, an opportunity for Marney-Rose to become an entrepreneur/sole business owner, presented itself so she could paint full-time. Marney-Rose paints realistically, influenced by romantic beauty and an ethereal softness creating for you an escape from the everyday.
