SURROUND YOURSELF WITH CREATIVITY. ALL 4 WALLS.
PATTERNS and illustrations
TO USE WHERE YOU WANT
A SPECIAL SPACE FOR SPECIAL PROJECTS
I’d say please have a seat, but I imagine you're seated already.
I’m Stephanie Marihan, a Brazilian artist that has a dutch OMA and OPA.
I've been based in the Hague since 2016, working as a muralist, illustrator and pattern designer.
My memories from my childhood in Brazil are still very present, as are the stories that my Dutch grandma used to tell me. I make patterns, digital art, objects and murals for both kids and big kids.
I work with different techniques and materials, all with the same goal: building a less gray world. Art that evokes an inner smile. Like many artists, my personal life can be seen in my creations:
I love being in the woods, I’m a foodie and I’m a mom of a sweet, 2 year-old hurricane and a lovely rescue dog.
Funnily enough, I share some similarities with both of them.
embracing the imperfection
My style is known as organic, imperfect and sometimes a little humorous.
Nature truly inspires me. As you will see, I love painting animals that I’ve never seen before, and I’m not sure actually exist.
Unusual color palette and some sassiness I experiment readily with colors. Doing so brings a lot of my identity to my work.
