Marike Koot was born in 1956 in the Netherlands and has lived in the South of France for the past 16 years. She is self taught, only recently discovering her talent for painting and drawing. Over the past years she has been attending art classes in Holland, France and Italy. Inspired by her environment she produces beautiful watercolours, acrylic and oil paintings.

Her work is full of her enthusiasm and sense of fun.  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.


Marike Koot est née en 1956 aux Pays-Bas. Elle vit en France dans les Corbières et a commencé à peindre en 2012.  Elle est autodidacte. Marike a suivi des cours d'art aux Pays-Bas en France et en l'Italie. Inspirée par son environnement, elle produit des acryliques, des peintures à l'huile et des aquarelles.

Marike espère que vous aurez autant de plaisir à regarder ses tableaux qu’elle en a eu à les peindre.
