Marion Bouwhuis (1951) lives and works in Enschede. She studied Painting and Graphic Art at the AKIAcademy of Fine Arts in Enschede. She exhibits regularly in The Netherlands and abroad.
Her Graphic Art consists of colour etchings, monoprints and mixed media works.
The starting point of her work is the shapes and colours found in nature. The most important goal of Graphic Art, to reproduce an image, is mostly abandoned her work: the graphic process in itself is more important than the production of identical images.
The print on these bookmarks is inspired by the strange shapes that are formed by the reflections of branches and plants in water. The technique is a combination of monoprint and screenprint.
