She loves to explore the shapes created by dark and light in everything she sees.  Mariette has a deep love for painting outdoors.  “There is nothing more invigorating than spending a day trying to capture God’s creation. Images are fleeting and I am constantly in awe of how much I see and how to translate that moment in my work”. Mariette paints and teaches in Abu Dhabi.
