Marike Koot

Ready to go and party.

Material: Linen canvas, acrylic paint and charcoal
Size: 60 x 80 cm

This painting was made during the covid lock down. I tried to capture the boredom and tiredness of this period. And the wish to go out again.

Marike Koot is a self-taught artist from the Netherlands, living in France in the Corbières. Since 2012 she has been a full-time painter. She went to art schools in the Netherlands, France and Italy. Marike has had exhibitions in France, Spain and the Netherlands with great sales results. Inspired by her surroundings she creates acrylic and oil paintings. Her work is colourful, figurative and impressionistic. Marike hopes that those who view her art will experience the great pleasure that has gone into it’s creation.
