Some of the professional qualities she has developed during her business career, such as her organizational and marketing sense, are of great use in sustaining this artistic lifestyle where everything is possible, but not without effort. Essentially self-taught, her signature has gained recognition tantamount to the self-confidence she has acquired over- time. Her artistic production favours urban scenes as well as rural ones, opposites that seem to actualize her own comprehensive vision. She also amuses herself at painting starry winter night scenes where the moon and artificial lights contribute to accentuate the disparities of this nocturnal universe and intensify the colours of the snow, since nothing is ever really white in her eyes. Having lived in the Montréal region for thirty years, her city scenes propose close-up images where the urbanites' lives are simply exposed, without the agitation with which they are usually associated. Louise Marion wishes to depict moments of relaxation where the spectator's mind can momentarily escape towards felicity. Favouring the vertical and thin necktie format, she breaks-up the space in three planes, corresponding to the levels of high rise buildings, as portions of reality. Her perky faceless figures are reminiscent of the anonymity and indifference that reign within the metropolis. As to her landscapes where the eye can softly wander through the various planes, they invite the spectator to stop and feel the bewitchment of nature; no human lives here to distract the eye from its contemplation. Marion also holds dear and wishes to transmit the patrimonial heritage of small country villages, whether in Québec or elsewhere. “Artworks reflect the history of a people and are transmitters of its culture. This is an important dimension in my mind, to which I always give consideration when I'm painting.” Probably a legacy of her previous profession, her rational thinking helps her devise structured compositions that are initially defined through forms that are often geometric.
