About Marleen Maria

 
 
  • Biography

    I am fascinated by how people are portrayed in the past, as well as in the present. In my portraits i attempt to capture what is real, essential, and eternal about a person. The eyes of the subject are the focal point of my work and allow the beholder to see the subject’s soul. The starting point of all my (commissioned) paintings is a photo session. From the photographs i took, i select the most striking one and start making sketches based on it. The focus of the painting emerges from the sketches. The painting comes to life because i keep adding transparent layers of paint on top of each other until the person’s essence appears on the canvas.
