Under the label Art2wear Marijke loves to make wearable Art pieces with a story to tell. Textile is her Passion as it lends itself to infinite possibilities of expression. with the tactile aspect, the flexibility, the unlimited colour range and the visual texture.

Marijke starts with a theme. Around this theme fabrics and all kinds of useful materials are collected. She works intuitively from there. The outcome is always a surprise, even she doesn’t know beforehand what the finished piece will look like. She uses all sorts of surface design techniques. Starting with many tiny pieces of fabric, and colourful machine-threads she 'paints' her designs. The story grows under her hands, it works like a kind of puzzle, sometimes it is easy to find a fitting piece and other times it takes longer until some more pieces turn up.
