Marlene Etherington is a visual artist in Toronto. She began taking art classes at the Art Gallery of Ontario School in the late 1990s to find a new way to express herself creatively.  She has not looked back from the first Introduction to art class she took, exploring drawing, sculpture and painting in both acrylic and oils at the AGO, The Avenue Road School of the Arts and now at Project: Art. There she has a small studio and works under the guidance of Ewa Stryjnik and with the support of the marvellous other artists working and studying there.
