WELCOME TO MY ONLINE PORTRAIT PORTFOLIO & CREATIVE ART PORTFOLIO
Welcome to my website, my name is Marjorie Lord I am an Artist based in Flaxton, Qld, Australia. This area is also known as the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and a most beautiful wet part of Australia to live.
My love of the fine arts has been since early childhood and throughout adulthood. It was around mid-2014 when I first seriously started to use a camera to create Photo Art Imagery. A whole new way of expressing has opened up for me to explore.
I am creatively inspired every day by the beautiful people I meet, the stories they share with me, my garden and travels.
ABOUT THE ART
I am first and foremost an Artist, the camera my tool of choice. I don't intend for my imagery to be a photorealistic capture. The camera is essential, but only one part of the imagery process. I do what I need to do if I feel it helps project a better story to the viewer.
Some methods I use are layering of different photographic images, adding text, graffiti, scanning objects, paintings and drawings.
I gravitate to expressing adverse or quirkier situations but not limited to just this.
As an artist - with a love of storytelling, I gather and collect stories in my mind then recreate a narrative that gives the imagery a language uniquely it's own.
CONCEPTUAL NARRATIVE ARTIST
Why do I call myself a Conceptual Narrative Artist?
I do this because I do not feel I am a photographer per se but a combination of both a photographer, artist, narrator & illustrator.
My imagery is not about realism, but the story of reality and life retold in a fictional pictorial narrative.
ABOUT MARJORIE LORD
Prior to discovering my passion for Photo and Digital Artistry. I have worked in our family business as a bookkeeper and mother to four sons for 32 years. Throughout my entire life, I have always been involved in some form of art. I love to create and as a result, a visual arts project has never been far away from me. Now that all the children are finally well-balanced adults leading their own lives, I am now fully able to embrace my inner creative self, to explore my conceptual art ideas with the use of a camera, scanner, and digital editing tools. I simply love to create images with stories.
