I am Marina - your texture coach on your cold wax painting journey!”

I am so happy that you came to visit me here in The Texture Lab and I would love to connect with you! A bit about me: I am a Dutch professional artist, living in the South of France with my family and lovely dog Tessa. I am passionate about painting with cold wax medium, in oils but also with the water-based cold wax and acrylics.

My whole creative process changed the day that I discovered these mediums and so will yours!
