Tofino artist Marion Syme

the letter 'Y'You've probably seen Marion's work around town. Her artwork is in many of the displays at the Raincoast Interpretive Centre and she has created several pieces for the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust. Marion has designed logos and posters for many local events including last year's Food and Wine Festival and the annual oyster fest and lantern festivals. She designs the newsletter for the Friends of Clayoquot Sound and believes that without this wonderful, committed organization the Sound would be a dismal place, stripped of its character and natural beauty.

In her business, Clayoquot Eclectic, through which she creates and distributes fine art cards, t-shirts and reusable shopping bags, Marion spreads the word that this is a unique place and its worth keeping that way. Marion sees our greatest challenge is to continue to live lightly without ex-ploiting the very nature that brought so many people to live in Clayoquot Sound in the first place.

Although her work for the past 20 years has primarily focused on graphic arts, Marion has a fine arts background. She graduated from Emily Carr College and in the past few years has finally returned to fine art, her passion and the reason she pursued art in the first place. Marion loves to draw. She sees her art as a process, evolving with each snippet and doodle. Inspired by music, writing and the rich array of people that have gravitated here, Marion finds her experiences in nature fuel her work.

A few of Marion's latest pieces, inspired by moments at the beach, can be seen at SoBo in the Tofino Botanical Gardens through July 31, 2007..
