Mariëlle is originally from The Netherlands but calls Cornwall her home since she moved here in 2003.
Mariëlle is an abstract expressionist landscape artist. Painting in oils she creates atmospheric paintings which depicts the changing landscape around her. The paintings although inspired by the Cornish landscape are an expression of the mind.
‘A painting usually begins from a memory of the place or a moment. Sometimes just looking at the sky can trigger an idea or a feeling I want to record in paint.
Mariëlle completed her BA (hon) degree in 2003. She has studied at the University of art in Utrecht the Netherlands.
