Mariëlle Braanker was born in the Netherlands in 1964. Mariëlle has been working with float glass as a professianal artist for over 25 years. She has developed her own technique that basically make all forms and ideas workable. She is able to make strong exciting forms of relatively simple material. Therefore she is still fascinated by the material. Her sculptures are abstract or figurative and brings the material to life. The light falling on the sculptures creates a magical effect and add a new dimension. Recently she started to create art prints, she fuses photo’s of her work made by herself to a new artwork.
