Although a mostly self-taught artist, Marian took classes in different art mediums and types of painting until settling on abstract painting and, relocating to Dubai in December 2004, started creating abstract work in oils and in 2005 began selling these at the first Artisans of the Emirates market. Since 2006 she has worked as a full-time professional artist, living in both Ipswich and Dubai, supplying her work to individuals, interior designers, and hotels. Her mostly abstract artwork is the use of bold colours and using textures but, with different fluidity of paint, creates unique patterns and has been using resin as a finishing product for her paintings which gives them an extra dimension and brings out their vibrant colours. Marian has exhibited her modern works in the UK, Dubai and in Barcelona and they can be found in countries from Japan to the United States.
