After living abroad for many years Mara returned back to her native village in The Netherlands.
The inspirations for her aquarelles are found in the sloping hill sides and beautiful rural landscape of her southern Dutch country valley. While traveling, she collects impressions in many drawings and art journals. Her love for the French Provences, old craftsmanship, the hidden secret of classic objects, antique books and ancient fabrics are reflected in her art work. After ten years, she has launched into the digital medium, mixing hand painted aquarelle subjects rendered with 3D-computer prints.
