Marlene Harold was born on Mt Florence Station in the Millstream Tablelands. She began her schooling in Nullagine and Marble Bar, finishing her education in Roebourne when her family was moved to the Roebourne Reserve. She has one son, two brothers and a sister.

Marlene Harold started painting late in 2006 at Yinjaa-Barni art centre, taking a TAFE short course in art and design. A quiet yet active participant in class, she revealed herself to be an enthusiastic socialiser among friends and family, with a witty sense of humour. She also revealed herself to be a promising painter.

Marlene Harold enjoys learning new techniques, quickly adapting them to her own style. This is reflected in the ease with which she moves between methods of applying paint to express her depictions of country. These include dot painting, applying paint with a stick, and mixing sand and texture with the paint. With her stick technique, for which she sometimes uses highly charged colours, at others subtle blends, she creates striking pieces of contemporary art.

Marlene Harold paints grasses and ancestral sites and stories that come from her country. She has a particularly delicate way of applying paint and mixing colour that sets her apart from her fellow Pilbara artists. A selection of paintings by Marlene Harold is available from Japingka Gallery, where collectors can buy Aboriginal art online with certainty of quality, authenticity and provenance of art works. Aboriginal art status – Established artist.
