Art Licensing & Artistic Inspiration: Marjolein Bastin
Marjolein Bastin has been an inspiration to me for years as both a watercolor artist and as an art licensor. If you are not familiar with her name, you most likely have seen her work in the Hallmark products since the 1990’s. She is based in Netherlands, but she paints and draws wonderful imagery from nature stories from all over the world. This is a charming little video that you are sure to enjoy.
Does this make you want to look a little closer at the nature in your world? What do you think you will discover?
“Marjolein is an accomplished wildlife artist based in the Netherlands, with an international following. She paints primarily with watercolor, always connecting her art to a story of life and nature. Apart from her beautiful florals and thoughtful creatures, Marjolein has also created, and illustrated, many beloved children stories. Perhaps Marjolein is best known as one of Hallmark’s most celebrated and award winning artists.”
