Marja Lee Kruÿt was born and raised in the
Netherlands in the province of Drenthe, a beautiful, dolmen-studded
region in the northeast of the country, near the German border.
She spent five years studying fashion illustration design in Amsterdam,
and at the age of twenty she embarked on a professional career
as a fashion illustrator.
In 1964, Marja moved to London, where she created fashion drawings
for major stores in England and abroad, as well as for newspapers
and magazines, such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. She was also
involved in the ballet -- both as a dancer and as a costumer for
various productions, and she made clothes for a Plimlico boutique
that catered to the likes of Marianne Faithful, Mick Jagger, Pete
Townsend, and Brian Jones.
The astonishing pictures that she's creating now have an assurance
and a rich maturity of vision that's been quietly brewing over
all these years. They've emerged like dreams, straight from the
subconscious, each one a treasure of mythic art.
