Grab some pals and enjoy an evening of wine, nibbles, painting & collage led by local artist Marlies under the fairy lights of Oodies Cafe.

About this Event

Always wanted to have a go at art making and collage but never knew where to start? Love wine, food and a bit of art on the side? This is a casual, fun-filled social event for wannabe creators of any age, skill and ability. Set under the fairy lights of Oodies Cafe by night, local Bundaberg artist Marlies (also owner of local art shop Art Plus) will teach you how to paint with collage and create your own masterpiece to take home whilst you sip on some wine (as many as you like), taste some of the lovely nibbles expertly catered by Oodies and have fun! Everything is included in the ticket price, just turn up on the night.

It's a long and complicated story....but the brief version is...

I am a "Collage Artist"

The slightly longer version is......

I currently live in Bundaberg a small city in Queensland, Australia, having studied at the National Art School in Sydney, the breeding ground of many of Australia's greats such as Margaret Olley, John Olsen, Martin Sharp, Jeffrey Smart and Max Dupain.

Even though I was born in Germany, my artistic career only began when I moved to Australia in 2001, so I identify myself as an Australian artist but my influences are many and varied.

I have a strong connection with symbols and icons of popular culture, figureheads and all things kitsch which can be seen throughout much of work.

Whilst I would describe would myself as a Collage Artist I play around with mixed media and occasionally play at being the street artist "Snipz"

My Collage work revolves around using recycled materials, be they old used postage stamps, books and magazines that have been discarded into charity shops, knitting patterns, papers of all sorts, barbie dolls and other toys.

Marlies is involved in the Bundaberg Arts Prize, is the owner of Art Plus and has been exhibited extensively both locally and nationally.
