Marieke (Rikki) Tollenaere
The beauty of the natural world is my inspiration.
I specialise in original seascapes and abstract paintings. Two
styles very different form each other, with the common element to portray the
colors, rhythms, and structures you find both on the sea and land. My studio nestled in the Tramuntana mountains of Mallorca, is open for visits on appointment, I might be in nature getting some inspiration…

"Rikki is very professional and I would recommend her without hesitation, to commission a painting or simply choose one from her collection"
"Upon receiving a Voucher for a Art lesson for my birthday, it was so amazing to travel into the country to such a creative space and work beside this truly gifted artist. A very good experience present for an birthday or christmas etc."
"Rikki is such a great teacher, her studio is full of her wonderful creations, such an inspiration."
I was following Rikkis facebook account for quite a while.
Grown up at the baltic beaches and sailor since I can walk, I was so fascinated about the paintings she is creating. Every painting, every landscape, every wave is an expression of her deep connection and love to the sea which is catching the viewer quite immediately.
Therefore it was only a matter of time until I fell in love with one of her paintings as it also reminded me very much to my home island. Thus I just ordered it.
Rikki was very friendly and helpful supporting the entire time and the painting arrived proper packed and protected against any possible damage.
Even a wonderful wooden framing was included and now the painting is placed at the bulkhead of my boats salon giving me joy everytime I am sitting there with a cup of tea in my hand.
Thank you Rikki !

Having spent most of my life living on islands, the sea was always a fascination. I could happily sit for hours looking at it, admiring is beauty, it’s strength and the way it is constantly changing. I first met Rikki in 2018 and was invited to visit her studio where I was stunned by her seascapes and her #making100Waves project. When buying a new home in 2019 we really wanted a painting which captured our love of the sea and we didn’t hesitate to commission Rikki. We spent some time working with Rikki to agree the design and size and get her advice. We got regular updates from Rikki and then in spring 2019 she presented us with the finished work. Rikki captured a beautiful moment in a constantly changing seascape. It is stunning and it sits in pride of place in our living room. Nice one Rikki !
