Under the aphorism ‘Simplicity is key’, Marieke Verdenius performs. When visiting her workplace, we notice  that her token is not merely an online-mask. The calmness and honesty that reflects through the images she creates, is truly there. In space and in person.

 

Marieke is a visual creator, of which one of the focuses is on food-styling .

She knows exactly how to dress up a table to appeal  guests.  Which is why we asked her to create images for us under our theme ‘Dinner’, using our textiles.
