Marcus Ebbett is 28 years old. He attended Kapiti College gaining excellence in NCEA Art. After leaving school he began full time employment at a web marketing company as a junior web designer and was promoted to head designer. He decided to cut his design work down and is now painting full time.
Marcus enjoys working with a wide range of materials over an equally wide range of subject matter. There is though, a strong feeling for the New Zealand landscape with a leaning toward nautical themes that reflects his interest in sailing, diving and fishing. The majority of his work is painted in oils but he also uses watercolour and acrylic with flair. Lately he has begun experimenting with egg tempera and is keen to do more with that exacting medium.
He is a member of and has exhibited at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. He takes part in the local Kapiti Arts Trail and is also an exhibiting member of Watercolour New Zealand and an Artist Member of the Otago Art Society. The public’s response to his work has been and continues to be very positive and his paintings now form part of many collections throughout New Zealand.
