Hyperrealistic figurative pieces by Marissa Oosterleethat captivate stunning, life-like pictures.

Marissa Oosterlee is recognized for her hyperrealistic figurative pieces that captivate the viewer with not only their technical detail, but also the narratives that she brings to life. The works show her adept hand and subtle nuances, making it hard to believe that art was not Oosterlee’s first career. She started off, instead, as an aspiring semi-professional cyclist, but a heavy accident at age 20 ended the career early. One year after recovering from the accident and picking up brushes and pencils again, she became a professional artist.

Marissa means From the Sea – Mermaid. It’s the perfect fit as her love for the ocean and nature is as big as her passion for Art. She is actively involved in cleaning up nature, creating awareness to the importance of clean oceans and raising funds with annual auctions for a good cause to help animals in need.
