Started being proud
I can remember being about 4 years old and the only thing I wanted to do is hammer. My father had a lot of timber in his garage and I constantly asked him for nailers. Instead, for my birthday I got a set of paper to fiddle with. I could fold it, wrap it up etcetera. I also made Christmascards when I was a child. My mother stimulated us on our children parties to work with clay or dough to create our own things.
At primary school I loved to draw, paint, colour pictures and make lantarns. At home I liked to bake and cook. Creating things has always been part of my life.
Till now I never thought about sharing my creations with other people. A few months ago I sold one of my paintings to someone in the US. That actually gave me the confidence to show more of my own work on Etsy. I find it a wonderful idea to make other people happy with the things I create.
I am Marike. I live in the north of the Netherlands, with my cat Ulli. I've studied architecture, building engineering and cultural geography. That maybe explains my interest in shapes, colours and textures. I love houses, hearts, animals and colour.
