  • Biography

    I’m MARION VIALADE, an artist made in France!

    No Diplomas, no art school, just me, a real self-taught artist.

    As far as I can remember, I always loved drawing. But being the oldest child of a vintners family, going to art school was considered a fantasy… I had to get a “real” job first!

    That’s how I ended up studying winemaking.

    Looking back, it was a good thing as my job made me discover a beautiful country that I will one day call my home : New Zealand.

    But Art is a part of who I am and I had to get into it no matter what. Because I had no art school background, I needed to explore different media to decide which one would suit me best. That’s when I felt in love with printmaking. For a long time, printmaking fulfilled totally my disciplined, very controlled drawing style. It was enough to create my black and white pictures. I was lucky to meet former printmaking teacher Chris de Jong from OCTA Gallery who shared his knowledge and let me spend long hours in his printshop/gallery in Old Cromwell.

    I would then juggle between the winery, the printshop and my wee boy Jules (born in 2012).

    But while I was exploring more and more printmaking techniques, I started longing for more simplicity and a looser style.

    That’s when my second baby boy Hugo came along and with him, the need to add colours to my prints and my life too.

    I took a new path, I taught myself how to paint.

    Two years later, I love painting, I make my own paint and I’m back to the printshop, learning the ultimate printmaking technique, Lithography.

    I’m still self-taught and I’m still learning…
