Pilbara artist Marlene Harold was born in 1954 in the Millstream Tablelands at Mt Florence Station. Her family were later moved to the coastal town of Roebourne, south of Port Hedland. In 2006 Marlene Harold began painting with other artists at Yinjaa-Barni art centre in Roebourne.
Marlene Harold developed a style of multi- layered dots that evoke the Creation stories of her traditional country, when the natural world was first being formed from water and mist.
Her paintings share the quality the impressionist artists, where many different paint marks are used to create a shifting surface of colour. Marlene Harold has exhibited at Japingka Gallery each year since 2009 with fellow Yinjaa-Barni artists.
