A Life in Art

This is me, Mari I’Anson … an artist living in Finchley, London. I have been an artist all my life from early infancy when I drew on anything at hand. Sitting on my Dad’s knee, I watched as he transformed a piece of paper into a pram. It had wheels and a hood (as they did in those days) a hood, I mean, they still do have wheels! I wanted to be able to do that. And I have spent my life doing just that. Never happier than with a pencil in my hand. I have worked on book illustrations, fashion drawings, package design, greeting cards, and that was just the first forty years of my life!

I am now looking back a great deal. There is more past than future.

This space is to be my talking point to anyone who cares to listen.
