Marike Koot was born in 1956 in the Netherlands but lives in the South of France. She is self taught. Inspired by her environment she produces beautiful acrylic and oil paintings.
Her work is full of her enthusiasm. She loves colors and likes a loose impresionistic way of painting.
Marike hopes that those who view her work will experience the pleasure that she had creating it.
This painting was made after a holiday at the Atlantic coast in France
After a holiday at the Atlantic ocean near Lacanau in France, I made this painting.
Being close to the ocean gives me a feeling of freedom.
Whenever I go to the Méditerranée, close to where I live, I get inspired.
