My dose of art

by Marlies Dekkers
As much as I have a love for fashion designers, beautiful fabrics and craftsmanship, I also have a love for spending my time visiting exhibitions and wandering through museums.

Art, architecture and the feeling of walking around in the mind of an artist – it fascinates me. In that respect I’m one spoilt, lucky lady. As I’m travelling a lot, I grab every chance to see many different works of art, making sure I get my regular dose of artistry.
Here are some of my favorite art exhibitions which are definitely worth a visit.

Trying to become a Maestro!

Trying to become a Maestro!

by Marlies Dekkers

For a television program I am competing with 8 other Dutch personalities to become THE “Maestro”. The last few weeks have been nerve wrecking; I found my new passion.

My week; an inside look

Marlies Says

My week; an inside look

by Marlies Dekkers

I never have a week with a same sort of agenda as the week before, or the week ahead. That’s because I sometimes live the life of four different people.
