Marjan van der Kooi

I am a Dutch amateur artist living in Dorset, England.I have always been interested in arts and crafts, initially as a functionality by making clothes and items for the home. However, several years ago I was inspired by a holiday at the sea-side to try my hand at painting and I have not stopped since. My preferred media are acrylics, oils and watercolours. I enjoy painting a wide range of topics. More of my art can be found at
