Art by Marlene
I was born in South Africa and emigrated to the Netherlands in 20o2 after marrying my DUTCH husband. We have 2 lovely teenagers, Charlize and Fabian. Together we live in a small coastal town in the northern part of The Netherlands.
I am a mixed media Artist, Art Journaler and Product Designer.
I am a signature designer for different craft companies : Studio Light, The Crafters Workshop, Artfoamies and Grafixarts. I just love making designs that people can use in their art!
Art journaling is something I do daily and in my experience, it brightens up the darkest day. I try to work in several art styles, not limiting myself to man set borders. I believe that it is part of my creative freedom to explore all styles that I like and that it broadens not only my view of art, but the all over experience too.
My artistic trademark is my use of bright & happy colours , my Whimsical style and the decorative details I use. My work is full of layers, movement, vibrant colors and lots of contrast!
