Hello, lovely soul! I’m Maureen, your creative confidant and the heart behind Maureen’s Writing Studio. Here in my little slice of the internet, I invite you to step into a world of stories, art, and inspiration. Whether you’re an aspiring writer, a seasoned creative, or someone looking for a spark of magic, you’re in the right place.
Born and raised in the Netherlands, I’ve always been captivated by the power of words and the worlds they create. I am a writer of short stories that dance in the liminal spaces between reality and fantasy. My creativity doesn’t stop at prose; I’m also an enthusiast for generating visual art through MidJourney, an AI for text-to-image.
My daily goal is simple: do something creative. Whether it’s penning a short story, generating an illustration, or sharing a “SchrijfSprankje” to inspire fellow writers, I make sure each day is touched by creativity. My mission is to guide and inspire you to explore, create, and flourish in your own creative endeavors.
My studio embodies a soft-focused realism; think pastel academia with a touch of hazy, dreamlike quality. Here, you’ll find a blend of pastel hues of lilac, silver, and teal, much like the morning light that illuminates my ideal creative space. I strive to reflect the natural world, my ultimate source of inspiration, through my work.
