Marisa Veerman

Marisa Veerman is a photographic and textile fine artist based in Brisbane. Having forged her career as a textile visual merchandiser in fabric boutiques across the state, Marisa sculpted endless fashion and theatrical pieces on mannequins with pins and fabric alone.


She is an emerging face in the art world and is currently broadening her artistic career through photographic art works that are embellished with fine embroidery and beading.
Raw honesty rests deeply in Marisa’s work. Peaceful melancholy pairs with a beauty that transcends time and place.


Harnessing delicate femininity, her works explore childhood innocence, fragility and emotion. This vulnerability is juxtaposed against an abundant strength.


Marisa has also worked on several other photographic projects and events creating commissioned fine art portraiture.
