Hi, I am Maree Clarkson, Artist, Nature Student, gardener and bird-lover.
I am a watercolour artist, taking inspiration for my art from nature.
My inspiration is easily stimulated – a certain shape, an interesting line or shadow, a beautiful colour, the curve of a leaf as it gently sways in the wind, something somebody says or a song, a pebble as it lays half covered by sand on the beach… the beauty of nature far surpasses anything man-made, and I can only but try to represent it as I see it. I work primarily in watercolours, but also enjoy using acrylics and oils from time to time.
Thank you for viewing my profile and welcome to my Bubble! Join me on my journey into the wonderful world of art!
If you’re interested in purchasing my ORIGINAL artworks, you can contact me at Maree Clarkson or BubbleMail me right here!

Or is it more like a heavy smoker wheezing after a brisk run on a cold morning? Here are 5 steps to being able to create as easily and as naturally as possible: / Create every day / When you create erratically or only when you have time, you never allow yourself to get int…
29th April 2011 – FEATURED in The Weekly Wrap / I received a comment on one of my works the other day, saying how ‘brave’ I am to ‘deface’ my work with my name and date details I put on it. I was a bit taken aback, as it’s a habit I’ve been practising for years, way back to my child-hood, and probably stemming from my habit of journaling. My reply was ton…
