Marian Alexopoulos


About the artist: Marian Alexopoulos was born in Suffolk, UK, in 1948.
Marian’s early love of art led her to enter Art School at Cambridge in the sixties. From there she went on to attend Leicester University, to obtain a teaching degree, majoring in Art.
During the early seventies Marian taught in London. She then moved to Australia where she found employment as an Art Advisor with the Victorian Department of Education and she was involved in primary school Art Education for many years.
Marian has also undertaken some freelance work illustrating for various publications and projects.
Now in retirement, Marian is actively involved in local art groups: President of the Woodend Art Group, member of the Macedon Ranges Arts Collective and Buttlejorrk.
Marian regularly exhibits and sells work and has recently held a successful solo exhibition at The Gallery Mt Macedon.
Marian revels in a variety of media: acrylic, watercolour, pastel and oil, as well as mixed media.
Travelling overseas and visiting major galleries has allowed Marian plenty of stimulation and inspiration; combining this with Australia’s own rich natural environment has supplied here with more than enough subject matter with which to sustain the spirit of creativity.
Marian particularly appreciates the artists of the twentieth century that have influenced her artistic leanings and engaged her in a journey that emphasises instinct and expression over realist tradition.
