Mariken van Heugten
Mariken van Heugten (Baexem, the Netherlands, 1973) entered the world of art via the side door. Having worked for many years in marketing, sales and logistics in international companies in Austria, Spain and Switzerland, she always continued to allow her creative side to develop. From 2018 onwards, she has intensified her creative activity, leading to solo shows in Constance 2020 and 2022 as well as an increasing interest for her work on Instagram.
Her inspiration comes from natural shapes, lines and structures, things she sees when moving around the nearby lake- and mountain area of Lake Constance in Germany. She works with ink as it has a very self-willed way of flowing and drying and allows great transparency. It is a process with an outcome which is neither certain nor predictable.
