Join Marilynn Webb, who is visiting all the way from Dunedin, as she talks about her work on display in Taste Before Eating. This series of prints was commissioned by The Dowse in 1982, and expresses Webb’s ongoing concerns about our environment.

Marilynn Webb was born in Grey Lynn, Auckland in 1937. She attended Opotiki College in Bay of Plenty; Ardmore Teacher's College, University of Auckland and Dunedin College of Education. She then went on to work as an art advisor for the Department of Education, Auckland, under the Gordon Tovey scheme while developing her own artistic practice.

In 1974 Webb was awarded the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at Otago University and in 1988 she began lecturing at the Otago Polytechnic School of Art. In 1999 she was accorded the honour of an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit, and in 2004 was made an Emeritus Principal Lecturer at the Otago Polytechnic School of Art. In 2010, Webb was awarded a Doctor of Laws Honoris Causa, by Otago University in recognition for her contribution to art education.

At the Creative New Zealand Te Waka Toi Awards she received both the Ngā Tohu ā Tā Kingi Ihaka award in 2011, and the Supreme Winner award in 2018.

Webb’s work is collected nationally and internationally and she continues her artistic practice in Dunedin.
