Marian Bantjes

“I often get mail from people and students asking me “What are your influences; where do your ideas come from.” I will answer that now: “Everything.” Conversations, things I read, things I see around me, books, magazines, old stuff, new stuff, art design, craft, film, music and garbage. I can be inspired at any moment by the strangest things. I am seldom bored. I have more ideas than I will ever be able to produce in my lifetime—some of them are even good ideas.”

- Marian Bantjes

Below are a few of my favorite pieces from her series “Love Stories”. Enjoy!

Watch a speech on “intricate beauty by design” here.
