Kochi Kochi is the moniker of Artist Marie Jones.
Marie’s work currently explores various forms from combining computer generated visuals with more traditional and tactile mediums such as needlework and knitting, to photographing still life sets of objects. October 2017 saw the launch of 'Ride Your Pony', a biannual international group exhibition organised by Marie with 26 participants taking part in it's inaugural show.

Marie is currently based at Islington Mill, Manchester, UK.
