About me

Hello my friends! I am so happy to see you here!
My name is Marileen Samuela Lewis and I'm a 33 year old Illustrator 

& Print Maker living on the Mornington Peninsula in Australia.
I'm half Finnish and half Dutch and 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 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 embody 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 selection of unique prints, cards, stickers and original works available for purchase in MY SHOP

and you can find examples of past commissions in the PAST PROJECTS section .
