Marion is happy to accept commissions in watercolour and calligraphy. If you have a favourite view in Scotland or elsewhere in the UK, contact her through Orbost Gallery to discuss your requirements. Travel beyond the Highlands may take a little planning and hence some delay.

Much of her calligraphy commissions are for private patrons and public bodies. Presentation addresses with heraldry are welcome. Blessings for a baptism or wedding anniversary or special wedding invitations are possible. Favourite pieces of poetry inspire jewel-like illuminations with raised gold leaf on vellum.

Previous clients of Marion's calligraphy include;

Skye and Lochalsh Highland Council - Role of Honour that hangs in the Council Offices in Portree plus a citation scroll of the Freedom of Skye and Lochalsh for round the world yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur.

Clan Donald Museum, Armadale - added entries in the Book of Remembrance.
