Hi, my name is Mariëlle, I am an international artist and creative coach.
Besides painting and coaching I also work part-time as a receptionist at a real-estate agency.
Through my paintings I share my thoughts, believes and emotions with the world. It is my way of speaking my deepest truth and sharing my greatest joy.
I am a mixed media, abstract artist painting my dreams inspired by my emotions, poems, Swedish stones and nature.
As a family we have moved many times, not only houses, but countries as well. We are Dutch but have also lived in Sweden and Spain, now my husband and I live in Spain.
I've always been creative in many different ways, but only started painting in 2016.
Starting to paint was a way for me to deal with the loss of my father in the beginning, but soon it was a way of expressing myself in every way.
I have never stopped since I picked up a brush in 2016.
Starting to paint has also been the start of a journey to find the real "Me". In daily life you cope with so many experiences and influences that form and deform you over the years and being creative has helped me to find the way back to me.
I am a positive person, always seeing possibilities and wanting to learn more and try it all. Over the last couple of years I've been exploring and finding and developing my own style, which is a colorful abstract style full of movement and positivity.
Especially by learning to use my intuition, learning to trust on my gut feeling I have been able to come this far.
This process of trusting and letting go is what I coach to women that like to explore intuitive painting.
Painting from within, painting what you feel is such a great way for self-exploring, self-healing and a wonderful source for creativity. I have found it to be very helpful in my process of grieving after my father passed away, but as well as an introvert in helping me to express my feelings on the canvas.
And by becoming comfortable with expressing on the canvas I have experienced I became more able to express in daily life.
