Marleen Pennings

Marleen Pennings creates colourful, layered works that combine photography and paint.
The artist studied Fashion Design, but left the industry to pursue art when she discovered her talent for painting.
Marleen's works make bold but genteel statement pieces.

Marleen Pennings, who also works under the name Stroke a Bird, is a Dutch artist based in Germany who creates layered artworks that are playful and full of colour. The artist collages images, which she then works through with sweeps of paint. Her colours are hand-mixed, and her process intricate.
