Capturing the essence



Marlies captures in a few pen strokes that which makes you, or your company, unique.

What is your story?

Everybody has a story to tell. A place they dream of, things they are proud of, or see a little detail that they love.
The stories are endless and all unique. 
Being able to capture your essence in a drawing is what makes me unique: To Sparkle.

Sparkling reviews

Beloved tower

Can you make a drawing of the tower Lange Jan in Middelburg?

My dad spent his working life there, still lives there. De Lange Jan is his view, our ‘beacon’ and always what we first wanted to see when we came back from a trip.

“It was really emotional to give him this present. And he loved it!”

A beacon in the city and in someone’s life. Proud that my drawing is so meaningful. That’s why I do what I do. To Sparkle.

Your (second) house

A client gave her husband this drawing of their beautiful new house.

He was really surprised and very happy with the beautiful drawing. Thank you that you could make and deliver this drawing so quickly!”

Gift for housewarming

What a beautiful gift to give to your friends.

On our housewarming we received a drawing of our own house, made by Marlies. We are so happy with it! Tasteful, nice and personal!”

The beginning

As a child I drew a lot. For some reason I convinced myself I wasn’t good enough and stopped.

Thanks to Mel Robbins (#mindsetreset) post: “Is it ONE day or is this day ONE?” I started posting my drawings on Instagram. I received beautiful feedback and my first clients!

I’m living my energy (=passion).
No matter what people think.

Sparkling me

Hi! I’m Marlies. I like to capture little details; experiences like you were there. The things that make me sparkle and hopefully others too.

In Italy (home base for 2years) I learned to appreciate the power of simplicity. Like good food; a sun ripened tomato doesn’t need much more to be delicious.

Teamwork, respect for each other and the effort that people put in their work, are key to me. I often capture work that has been made by others.

The power is in the attention you give.

 Italy it is

I fell in love with the country, the quality of the food, the language and the people. And was so lucky to live there a couple of years.

It’s not always possible, especially now in Corona times, to go back. This drawing makes me feel “home.” Taste the pleasures of this beautiful country at your own home. More Italy drawings on Instagram @Italyitis.
