Marilynn Webb (ONZM) has an international stature as a printmaker, an extensive teaching career and has been involved in over 180 exhibitions and over 35 curated exhibitions/symposiums.
Marilynn has maintained an art career in tandem with mostly full-time teaching and has taught nearly all the emerging print artists in Otago. She currently holds the position of Emeritus Principal Lecturerer, Otago Polytechnic School of Art, Dunedin, New Zealand.
Her pastels and prints have focused on New Zealand’s most remote and fragile environments, including Fiordland, the Maniototo hinterland, Stewart Island and the Antarctic Islands. She has received Department of Conservation commissions which take fine artists to wild and seldom accessible places to communicate a view of fragile environments.
Her printmaking explores not only sense of place but also human connections – bloodlines and family, her own ancestry both Maori and of European, and the way we are linked to special places.
