Marianna Marx creates little worlds on paper. Her drawings often feature solo adventurers immersed in quirky and thought provoking situations. Marianna’s whimsical illustrations are hand drawn in her Melbourne studio using traditional methods including pencil, fragments of old books and watercolour paints. These intricate drawings are then turned into archival quality prints and greeting cards. Each drawing she creates alludes to a narrative however her ultimate goal is for her artwork to light a spark in the viewer’s mind that allows them to imagine their own story. Her drawings invite the audience to temporarily escape into their own imagination and be drawn into another time or place.
Marianna’s work is featured in Signed & Numbered in Melbourne and has been published in numerous publications including Home Beautiful Australia, Big Kids Magazine, Young Vagabond and the Financial Review.
