Marion Bolognesi

Marion Bolognesi currently lives in New York, splitting her time between her full time job as an accessories designer, and her passion for watercolour painting. Bolognesi is currently working on a new series of portraits of modified colors and moods. She has also recently started blogging which you can check out here.

In a recent interview with Page to Pixels, Bolognesi described her work and process.
“Since that time I’ve become almost hyper focused in faces and facial expressions. It’s the subject matter that I love & really interests me, I don’t know if I’ll ever get sick of it. I also have a very close relationship with watercolor as a medium. It’s very easy for me to lose myself in a painting. I definitely want to continue with these focuses and try to push myself to find new paths to explore expression, watercolor and portraiture.”
