Marjolein Caljouw is a full-time illustrator and artist hailing from the Netherlands, who is able to produce some beautifully empyreal drawings and paintings. Her use of paleness in juxtaposition with the warming pastel colours drew me into her work, which is usually the very same sort of quality that deters me, seeing as I’m very often and quite easily drawn to dark pieces of art, but maybe because I adore such beautiful depictions of the female form, and Marjolein’s work provides a sustenance for that adoration, I can bear, and even marvel at the colour choices she makes.
One of her works, “Never Neverland” struck me in particular as a sort of, feminine interpretion of the work of one of my favourite artists, Marco Mazzoni, (previously featured in August 2011 – http://www.emptykingdom.com/featured/marco-mazzoni/), which made me love her work even more.
