"My work explores images of the natural world through layers of colour, shape, line and texture. Interwoven are elements of pattern. I like to think of my work as containing images and fragments of images that arrest the viewers' attention and challenge their perceptions."
"After my first degree, I taught art at Redhill School in Johannesburg before emigrating to the UK in 1978. Since University in London, I have continued to be involved in the art world through regular exhibitions, in printmaking and painting."
South African artist, living in London, Marilyn Simler has received commissions from corporate and private clients, including the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. Her work is represented in public collections including V&A print portfolio with the PMC, The Rolls Building London and Unilever.
