Karin Marleen Dijkstra
Karin Marleen Dijkstra is a watercolor artist who draws inspiration from music and nature, from mythologies and fairy tales, and is particularly influenced by the magical paintings of the Golden Age Illustrators. She hopes not so much to generate a sense of nostalgia but to allow for the momentary immersion of the adult self in a magical childhood sensory world. Karin is Dutch-American and has lived in the Netherlands, South Africa, Switzerland, Scotland, and London, and she draws from the culture and landscape of those places. She is a graduate of Vassar College and currently lives in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
