✺ Hi, it's Marileen ✺
I am SO happy to see you here.
My name is Marileen Samuela Lewis and I'm a 33 year old Illustrator, Painter & Printmaker.
I live on the Mornington Peninsula in Australia, but I'm half Finnish & Half Dutch.
I grew up in The Netherlands where I lived for most of my life.
I've always loved drawing, painting, singing and playing music.
Creativity runs through my veins.
I studied Illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam for several years
after which life side tracked me onto a path of self discovery.
DURING THIS TIME I:
⋆ started gardening & completed a Permaculture Design Course
⋆ catered for various Holistic Retreats & Events
⋆ traveled around the world
⋆ recorded an album with my husband Jackson Lewis, called 'Found in Love'
⋆ completed a Yoga Teacher Training in Guatemala
⋆ co-facilitated Sound Healings, Kirtans & Cacao Ceremonies
When my husband and I semipermanently moved to Australia in 2019,
creating visual art became my MAIN FOCUS.
✺ About my work ✺
My designs have always been inspired by the forces of NATURE and our connection to SPIRIT.
Animals, plants, flowers, feminine forms and elemental shapes are a returning theme in my work.
I also take a lot of inspiration from Art Nouveau and traditional botanical prints.
I embrace a BROAD RANGE OF STYLES;
from innocent children's illustrations to empowering works of art
that are suitable for altar spaces and meditation rooms.
I have a wide selection of unique prints, cards, stickers and original works available for purchase in:
