11 days of giveaways, day two with Mariska Meijers

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED-

I used to be snow white but I drifted. Love that-

Meet Mariska Meijers. Her work is quite simply capturing. It draws you right in. It's bright + bold. The artist herself is gorgeous, warm and inviting.
Mariska says, "I don't believe in minimalism. There are no rules when it comes to mixing styles and colours. A house should give you a happy and warm feeling. With this in mind I create my art and my products."






These three pieces are from her works on paper. You can commission a portrait of your own interior. How great would that be?


Mariska's work encompasses canvas, paper, stationary and pillows.


She has two upcoming events, that if you are in the neighborhood, you MUST visit.



July 31, 2010
Exhibition/opening event at Design Within Reach, Coral Gables Studio, Miami, USA

August 28, 2010
Exhibition/opening event at Design Within Reach, West Palm Beach Studio, Miami, USA


YOU could own your own piece of Mariska's work, you could even share it ( and by share it, I mean write letters to your friends, give on a gift, you do get 10 after all )! If you win, you'll get to choose the boxed set of note cards of your choice. You can peruse them all here


Here's how you can win. Be a follower, go visit Mariska at her webstore, come back, and leave a comment telling me which set of boxed note cards you would like if you win! Easy! For another chance blog about the giveaway and come back and leave a second comment! Winner will be announced on July 5th.




Here's a few choices-
Mariska was SO lovely to let me pick out a box for me.. I picked Holland. Thank you Mariska. xx






Mariska blogs here at I used to be Snow White but I drifted, and for those in the US, you can shop here at inter decorations

Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of Mariska's beautiful boxed sets. I'm loving that beautiful bird (her and the one she's painted!). I've followed Mariska's blog for a while now and I find her truly inspiring with her wonderful use of colour. And crumbs she's nice as well as talented!

I love the Birds card set. I love the colors with the green gold background and magenta flowers. Her pillows are so beautiful as well! I'm planning to recover my cough this fall and they would make such excellent accent pieces!

Eva of Interdecorations said...

as a proud distributor of Mariska Meijers work in the USA, we will have all cardboxes available for purchase in two weeks from now. (www.interdecorations.com) So if you haven't won any, don't worry. By the way, another way of enjoying her design cards is by framing them all together. They make a beautiful piece of art on your wall.

And of course, thank you Sarah, for having picked Mariska as one of your 11 give-a-ways!!

I would have to choose the Blossom series as I think this captures beatifully the work of Mariska. Her use of colours and the strong asian influences inspire me. Her work simply makes me smile.

I fell in LOVE LOVE LOVE with Mariska Meijers work a few years ago I was in Amsterdam, & she was having a show at Arta Casa. Unfortunately, I was only able to view her paintings through the gallery window because they were closed. I did, however, pick up a postcard printed with little thumbnails of some of her paintings, which hangs on my refrigerator to this day! I subscribe & would love to win a box of the Blossom notecards or the Feest cards. Thanks!

liza said...

Well, that was a very tough decision! I think I'd choose blossom. The one on the cover of the box is so cheerful! Thank you for the chance, Sarah.

Vanja said...

Happy 1st birthday! I was fortunate enough to see her work in Amsterdam at Arta Casa gallery that used to sell her work. I would choose Birds.Thanks!

Dyche Designs said...

Wow I love Marika's work. It was hard to pick a favorite from her notecards but if I had to choose it would be the 'Green' set. Fantastic giveaway, love it.

karen said...

I love the birds. I also love it when people follow their path and it veers, and they still have enough faith to follow their path.

Heather said...

Maybe it's the Dutch in me coming out, but I love the "Holland" set. What a beautiful color pallette!

flip flop and fancy free said...

such lovely art. I am so glad I have had a chance to look at them all. Wish I could get down to South Florida to see the exhibit, but for now I will be happy loving the colors and joy in each and every card, so I would let you choose!

pam@pixelimpress said...
