Marj Bond studied Drawing and Painting at Glasgow School of Art, tutored by Alex Dick, David Donaldson, Mary Armour and Benno Schotz and their expressionist principles exist in her work.
Though firmly based in Scotland, Marj’s work is inspired by her travels to India, Morrocco, Spain and Cuba and the symbols and colours from these places. Her sketches, photographs and of temples, fossils, kasbas and celtic symbols are edited on to canvas and paper and transformed into her personal glyphs and marks.
Over the years, Marj has gained many awards, prizes and important commissions and has shown in major exhibitions throughout Britain. She is an elected member of the Scottish Society of Artists, and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour.
