Marieken Cochius is a Dutch-born artist who has lived and worked in New York City since 1987, and in the Hudson Valley since 2013. A sculptural public commission was completed in 2017 for the Village of Wappingers Falls, NY.
Meditative, strong and intuitive work that often explores the ambiguous borders that contain life, she is drawn to remote places where she studies nature and makes art inspired by it. Her work encompasses drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking.

Her work is in numerous private collections in the US and Europe. She has collaborated with musicians and other artists. She has participated in two residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT. Recent solo shows were at Matteawan Gallery in Beacon, NY, and Holland Tunnel Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
