I am so happy to have Mariska Meijers with us today! She is an uber talented artist and I am so glad she has shared some of her favorite work with us!
Although my paintings often looked styled, while painting I follow my instinct not theory. I am self taught and categorzie myself as a decorative painter. Technically my paintings are far from perfection. But my strength is that I am creative, my brain just continuously bursts with new ideas and I have been able to develop my own distinctive style. It is bold, sassy, vibrant. I just don't believe in minimalism. I am of the "school" that there are no rules when it comes to mixing styles and colours. A house should give you a happy and warm feeling. With this in mind I create my art and my products.
Dear Leah has asked me to select some of my favourite works. How can a mother select her favourite child. Here are just a few I have picked, but all my work is part of me and I cherish every single thing I create despite its imperfections.
