Marjo is a watercolorist who specializes in beautiful two-tone equine portraits, capturing her love for horses in her own unique way.
Belgian equine watercolour artist Marjo Lebbe (1991) inherited her passion for art from her grandfather who taught her to draw in his own studio as a child and who still inspires her to this day. In 2018, Marjo held an exhibition in Antwerp for the second time, called Lebbe & Lebbe, where she exhibited alongside her grandfather's work.
Driven by an interest in everything that lives, she started to a study veterinary medicine and began to understand horses better. The anatomy of the horse plays an important role in her work, it has to be right.
As a vet, Marjo experiences every day as a challenge to understand and heal these complex and sensitive creatures. Every day, horses continue to inspire her to create a realistic yet abstract image with just a bit of paint and lots of water. Marjo captures her love for horses beautifully in her signature two-tone watercolors made with burned siena and navy blue. It makes her work very recognizable, unique and complete.
