Marion Boddy-Evans is a former writer for ThoughtCo. She covered painting for ThoughtCo for 12 years. She is an artist and writer living on Scotland's Isle of Skye, an inspiring part of the world for landscape painting. She sells her crafts and teaches art and quilting workshops on the island in Portree. Marion's painting knowledge comes from formal instruction, studio experience, workshops, self-directed personal study (theoretical and practical), and discussions with other artists. She has contributed articles to art magazines and blogs, edited numerous nonfiction books (including how-to art titles), and authored and co-authored other books.
Marion obtained a bachelor's degree at Rhodes University. She attended evening classes in London ranging from perspective drawing to book design, self-portraiture painting, and life sculpture.
