Marion Aitken – Living Fully Alive

Marion Aitken – Living Fully Alive

Marion Aitken was born in Zimbabwe to a New Zealand father and Canadian mother but grew up in Stratford, Ontario. Since childhood, she has thrived creating beautiful things, so naturally studied art in school.

A graduate of London Ontario’s Bealart Vocational Art Program and Sheridan College’s Technical Illustration Program, Marion’s artistic passion is to compose accurate, striking images full of vivid colour and/or tone, rich in detail, reflecting the fascinating patterns and designs found both in the natural and urban worlds. She paints realistically and prefers to use her own photographs as reference material. These photographs capture inspiring subjects from her travels. She has travelled extensively throughout North, Central and South America, Britain and New Zealand over the past several years. This exposure to different cultures and customs has tempered both her artistic expression and world view.
