Marian is an artist and illustrator based in Bath. Working in paper collage she manipulates fragments of paper, carefully selected for colour and texture, fitting them together to build up intricate images. Marian often goes out drawing and uses location sketches as a starting point for her collages. Her work is usually inspired by landscape, architecture, local ecology and she is currently developing a fascination with beetles.
Marian has produced collaged illustrations for numerous publishers and magazines. Her work has been printed on greeting cards, book jackets and featured on a Royal Mail postage stamp celebrating the London 2012 Paralympics. She has also worked for a number of years as a lecturer on the illustration degree at UWE Bristol. marianhill.co.uk
