Marlies is a London artist who works in various mediums. She lives close to and is inspired by the water and wildlife around the river Thames with the multiple shades of blue featuring constantly in her work. Her portrait paintings in oil seek to capture the feeling, the essence of the sitter whilst the acrylic pieces are more abstract and express the mood engendered by the space around her.
