Marina Teding Van Berkhout

Marina is a Dutch Artist living in Plascassier, in the South of France. She had started her creative jouney in aquarelle but quite quickly moved on to oil paint and has never gone back. She attended workshops in England, the Netherlands, France and studied at the 'Académie of Beaux-Arts Anca-Sonia' in Grasse. She is absolutely passionate about painting faces, figures and flowers, slowly changing in style from very detailed to more and more loose.  ‘I found my voice when I discovered the Cold Wax Medium which allows me to make beautiful textured backgrounds using not only oil paints but pigments, pastels and oil sticks. It has given me far greater freedom to explore and experiment new ways of expressing myself through my art.
