Marie Grice meets Graeme Stevenson

Colour in Your Life featured artist Marie Grice appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Fifteen (15)

Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Growing up on a farm in Wanganui (NZ) and later becoming a vet nurse means that Marie Grice has been surrounded by animals all her life. But it was not until she was recovering from a serious car accident and bedridden for months that she began to paint.

Starting with watercolours she quickly moved onto Oils and Pastels, as her technique and experience grew. Marie paints in a realism style using many fine layers, which means that her paintings show great depth and the finest of details.

Marie Grice’s work to date has mostly focussed around birds and common farm animals, her exquisite studies reminding us to acknowledge their simple beauty and dignity; qualities easy to overlook. Her work is now in high demand, with many works sold before they are finished or framed.

    I loved how she turned the painting upside down, I have heard of people doing that but this is my first time seeing it occur. Fantastic detail in each piece. Thank you for sharing.
