About Me

Marie Mason is an Australian Printmaker based in Melbourne, Victoria.

Marie's works are inspired by Australian landscapes, in particular the Goulburn River in the Shepparton area and Murray River.

Marie says, "I am trying to separate and simplify the patterns of nature and print them accurately together to show the beauty and diversity of God's creations.

The presence of sunlight and shade in the landscape, twilight shadows and water, are all fascinating challenges.

"I love making beautiful, interesting pictures and am addicted to printmaking. Printmaking at the Australian Print Workshop has helped me enormously, providing a professional place in which to pursue these interests.

I have been mainly influenced by the strong pattern and line work of Claude Flight, Eric Thake, Thea Proctor, Margaret Preston, Murray Griffin, Hans Heyson, El Greco, van Gogh and Picasso and the Fauves, also Martin Rek and David Frazer and other top Australian Printmakers.
