Marie Keeling has been a St Ives-based artist for over 20 years and serves as a director and our Treasurer at the Society.

My work includes paintings, mosaics, jewellery and freestanding art using various mediums, often including found or repurposed items. 

Although I love the beautiful wild county of Cornwall where I live, my true nature lies within the factories and boiler rooms of industry and the city. My abstract artwork is mostly inspired by engineering and the urban landscape. 

I love to put shapes, textures and colours together in a way that I believe is beautiful and it makes me feel happy. I want people to see whatever they like in my work, to add their own interpretation.
