Marlene Kawalez was born in Southern Ontario, where she lives, studies and continues to experiment with clay. She studied graphic design in Toronto and began exhibiting her sculptures in 2005. Kawalez continues her education through various workshops by artists from across Canada and the United States. In her work she experiments with different techniques and materials including clay, wood, glass and mixed media. Her work delves into our relationship with nature and the experience of loss and longing. She does this by peeling away exterior layers to reveal internal complexities. Over the last fourteen years, her work has been published in books, magazines, and newspapers including a feature article on her practice in Zoneone Art. She has exhibited in solo and group shows in Canada and the U.S. Her work is in various private collections in North America and worldwide.
