"Morning Light" by Marilynn Bury

Marilynn Bury

Marilynn Bury was born in Edmonton, Alberta but has called Kelowna, BC her home since 1971. It is in the beautiful Okanagan Valley where Marilynn has been inspired by the natural surroundings and abundance of fruit and wonderful orchards. Marilynn enjoys painting in both oils and acrylics, depending on the subject. It gives her great pleasure to see a painting emerge. She likes using vibrant, warm and sunny tones in impressionistic style especially in her signature fruit paintings.

As an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists in Kelowna, Marilynn is surrounded by a wonderful and inspiring group of artists and friends. Art has always been a part of Marilynn’s life. She started drawing as a child moving into oil painting and then on to acrylics. Her earliest subjects were still lifes and people. Over the years, Marilynn has developed a notable style with her large and textured fruit paintings. Her newest interest is in discovering the wonderful world of painting landscapes.

Marilynn’s background as an Interior Decorator has given her a great love and sense of colour. Although she considers herself self-taught, she has taken workshops from various distinguished artists over the years. She has also completed courses at Okanagan University.

You can find her work at Gallery 223 in Nanaimo and at The Gallery in Peachland during summer months. She also sells her art privately as well as creates unique pieces by commission.
