Mariska & I
The other day I had the privilege of meeting Mariska Meijers!
She is currently in Toronto, so we met up at the fabulous King West restaurant Spice Route for lunch and drinks. It is really unbelievable that through blogging I have come to interact with all of these people I deeply admire, I never would have thought blogging would lead to this. In person she is funny, beautiful and her passion for what she does as an artist is inspiring. I learnt a lot from her and I am glad I can now call her a friend!
Check out her website for more of her works, and her story, it is so interesting. Also after 4 short years as an artist the public has celebrated her work, and has been published several times including the likes of Elle Singapore, and has even been in a documentary in Holland. She recently launched a beautiful line of pillows, I can't wait to see what she will do next. For Mariska it seems the opportunities are endless.
