Mariella Wolff, Artist

Mariella was born in Italy, where she trained in Fashion and Fine Art, moving to London in 1978.


After teaching painting and drawing in adult education between 1988-2004,  she then moved to Cucklington, Somerset starting a private school of art.

She has exhibited her work in Italy, London and Somerset. Having recently retired from teaching her focus is now to develop

long standing ideas into painting.

Mariella has a strong interest in Cubism. Her chosen subjects often evolve on canvas without pre established structure, a

collage of textured papers and other materials are applied, then submerged with paint. The swing from figurative to abstraction is ultimately trying to satisfy a personal mood and statement. She is never satisfied and always searching until her work no longer relates to the original subject but acquires a new identity.
