Marijke Otten paints from a spiritual quest. Passionately she shows the great secret of being human, the essential behind the superficial. In her paintings a silent force radiates through the factual image.

The most important thing for me is to have people feel the warmth and strength in my work and I hope they will feel Light, Life and Love, and that they will forget their suffocating limitations and pressing ties of 'is supposed to this way' and 'has to be this way' and will be loyal to themselves.
