Hi, I'm Marie Widolf  a Sydney-based artist and I specialise in illustrating for children and for those young at heart. My work is recognized for it’s mayhem and surreal themes, and whimsical characterisations of humans and animals. The inspiration for my compositions comes from observing and challenging expected ideas and predictable outcomes. I want the viewer to find something endearing and surprising in every corner of the canvas/paper, and something they have not seen before. I am a visual story-teller, a cartoonist and a writer, and my signature style is my combining of different planes of reality by placing my subjects in (often) impossible predicaments!
Meet my cartoon character Gertrude! Modelled after my own failures and disasters in the kitchen, Gertrude dreams of one day becoming a great chef...
