Edie Marshall is a thrid generation settler and a Saskatchewan painter who is interested in the environment, the history and culture of the land. Most of her work is about the prairies where she finds an unlimited and often overlooked source of colours and shapes, ideas and images. Edie paints large energetic canvases and small intimate ones as a way to describe the vastness and energy of the land with its diverse and unique ecosystems. 

 

Edie received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004 with Great Distinction. She has work in public collections at SK Arts, the University of Saskatchewan and St. Thomas More Gallery in Saskatoon. Her work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in private collections in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Europe and Australia.  

 

Edie taught painting at the Neil Balkwill Civic Art Centre for 3 years.  She worked as the Program Coordinator at the Art Gallery of Regina and at CARFAC SASK. She is an advocate for visual arts and artists and has served on the CARFAC Saskatchewan and National Boards, the board of directors for the Art Gallery of Regina and the Saskatchewan Arts Board.  Edie resides in Riverhurst, Saskatchewan with her husband Greg where she has her studio practice.
