HI, I'M MARLEEN SUZANNE

Colorful, bright, and powerful are the words that best describe my body of work. The portraits are strong and often look you right in the eye. The marks of the paint brush and acrylic markers that are used are often visible which adds an interesting depth to each peace when viewed up close. 

With my paintings I aspire to offer viewers a power boost through hyper-color and mood. I try to capture a certain energy with each painting, using bold and playful colours. In portrait paintings I try to show a duality of for example strength and vulnerability. This duality makes the painting very exciting for me as the artist as well as for the viewer of the work. 

My works are often part of small series of three paintings  These series are connected by theme or genre, sometimes with sub-themes or recurring elements. Much of the big paintings are painted with acrylic paints. And some of the smaller works are also done in gouache, watercolour, ink, charcoal, and oil pastels. However, acrylic paints remain my favourite medium.

To enquire about owning your own acrylic art or for any other commissions, please get in touch today. I enjoy a challenge and am hoping to work on larger and more complex works.
