Early on in her career, she undertook together with students of the Institute of Arts & Crafts under the supervision of Frans Masereel, the frescoes in the choir of the church of St.Ursula (text in german) in Scheidt (Sarre). Thereafter, she adapted the technique of fresco to oil painting whereby color is applied with a palette knife on a layer of gesso preparation on wood or other rigid supports.

Aware that current artistic trends tend to experiment with a number of media and follow a certain aestheticism, Marliese Scheller’s oil painting expresses an internal thought and attempts to touch the soul, to unveil part of the human character. It is through facial expressions and the setting that the figures are perceived as being part of a universe filled with lyricism, with poetry.
