Marjorie Arnfield studied design at Sunderland College of Art and gained her art teacher's diploma at Kings College, Newcastle. Her tutors included the influential modern British artists Quentin Bell (1910 –1996) and Victor Pasmore (1908–1998). Although her immediate family were not miners, in moving to Nottinghamshire in 1970 Arnfield must have felt drawn towards recording the coal industry, whether depicting community life or its industrial landscape.
