✺ 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:
