Love for ornithology and art combined

Marieke can only remember that she likes to work with her hands. She likes to draw and paint, but she doesn't limit herself to 2D art. She also wants to do sculpting and sewing occasionally. But there is still a lack of skill.
As you may have already seen, the paintings and drawings are mainly dedicated to birds. That's no coincidence: Marieke likes to watch birds, and she doesn't have to go far for that. Birds are everywhere. These aerodynamic, feathered, mini-dinosaurs are a popular subject for Marieke. Both the exotics that she has been allowed to photograph in her own habitat in Kenya and Tanzania, and the 'ordinary' sparrow in the garden (or zoo), it gives her just as much pleasure.
It was time that her bird art was not limited to her own living room (where, incidentally, three cheerful cows in full regalia hang on the wall), and appeal to a wider audience. In the meantime, a number of works have appeared in various exhibitions, but it is difficult to demonstrate her 'live' drawn works - which are often more vivid than the realistically executed paintings - in a beautiful way. And then Etsy came her way, an exciting medium to let all her unique works, of which there is really only one, go out into the wide world! And so it happened...

    Marieke has devoted almost her entire life, since birth, to creativity. Drawing and painting was done wherever and whenever possible, and she still does this with a lot of love!
