Working texture-free, Marylou relies heavily on shape and colour within her practise. Stripped-back styles such as Marylou’s often run the risk of becoming limp and lifeless. However, Marylou has mastered the knack of injecting flat energy into her work.

Each of Marylou’s pieces has a sense of motion too it. Whether it is a waving hand or jumping bunny, there is always an implied movement in each of her creations. Little dashes and strokes aren’t just cute design details. They add a sense of motion, thus adding energy and excitement to the piece.
