Where West and East meet

I blend the East and the West, the old and new, heaven and earth.
Bridging opposites to bring forth awareness and harmony in our inner & outer world.
In all of my works you’ll find circles, the symbol for Source.

As an artist I like to work with textile, it’s flexible, fragile and tactile.
I know the creative process from A to Z and I keep on developing.
By applying my creative, intuitive and imaginative talents, I can serve best and contribute to a wonderful world. I love to create & co-create. ‘Marieke’

Jenna: ‘Marieke is attracted to the avant-garde, the latest advances in human thought and development and eclectic and cosmopolitan in her tastes, a global citizen.
Forward looking and progressive Marieke is a person who supports change, innovation and human advancement. The language of art is natural to her and she is able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms.
Strongly committed and extremely aware of interconnection, wishing to contribute something of value to the world. Truly interested in the good of the whole.’

Alariel: ‘As an artist she is able to resonate with the spirit of the 21st century and express its ideals, its unique quality and energy’.

There are many ways to communicate just as there are many languages
