Marianne Enhörning is a West Coast Canadian artist. Born in Sweden, she is deeply influenced by her family heritage. Marianne has spent many years alternating her time between natural and urban environments: on the West Coast as a kayak guide and in cities, working in architecture.

Marianne creates evocative, dreamlike works in oil that are figurative, nature influenced and abstractly architectural. Her art explores the division between modern society and nature, longing for a more harmonious world.

“Painting is my voice, the place where I can express passions that words can’t reach. I begin with a pallette of paint, a new canvas and no preconceived ideas. When I raise my head I see an image true to my being that still evades words.”
