Marjory Smart has loved painting for as long as she can remember and has been a member of Carnoustie Art Society for almost ten years. As a child she was always creative and made dolls houses and painted china with an aunt who was also very artistic. On leaving school Marjory's career took an alternative path into nursing though Marjory maintained her interest and enthusiasm in art as a hobby. Upon retirment in 2015 Marjory has been able to devote time to developing her talents and painting skills. Her favourite medium is pastel but she also works in acrylic and watercolour. Although Marjory enjoys landscape painting she is able to paint many diverse subjects from animals to people and still life.
