Every few months, Mohawk Inn features a new artist’s works on our lobby and meeting room walls!
Artists are affiliated with FASM (Fine Arts Society of Milton) and always showcase an array of local talent.
Current Artist: Marie Austen
As long as I can remember, I have always loved creating, making or decorating items. In my childhood these items included creating anything from homemade Barbie clothes to simple drawings and, later in my adulthood, making many creative crafts and painting murals in my daughters’ rooms.
It was as an adult that I purchased watercolours and paintbrushes for myself. I was instantly hooked! I love the way visual arts quiet the mind, almost to a meditative state. I am a self-taught artist with many years experience in painting with acrylic, mixed media and watercolour, as well as in participating in many art workshops with other talented artists.
Some of my favourite pieces, created with acrylics, have been featured in local galleries. I love the way you can layer acrylics to add texture and dimension.
I am a commissioned artist and also accepted into FASM’s 2nd annual Open Juried Art Exhibition for my Mixed Media BIRCH painting; accepted into Call for Entry for Mayor’s Gala 2014 “Paris Themed” at Milton Centre for the Arts; also exhibited numerous times with FASM’s Heart to Hand Exhibition at the Milton Centre for the Arts; many of my works are showing at The Gallery Upstairs at Bronte & Mill St. (Milton); was interviewed and featured in the Spotlight in FASM’s Fall Newsletter 2014; a participating Artist in the FASM Pan Am Mural as well as the huge 30 ft. Four Seasons Mural in our new Milton Hospital!
