Mariepol Goetzinger is an artist from Luxembourg. Having studied at the Lycée des Arts et Métiers, she goes to Trier and Berlin on a regular basis for training. Ms Goetzinger currently works for the Natural History Museum in the exhibition department. She also takes part in the Empreinte engraving workshop in the Rollingergrund.
Mariepol's stamp design uses marbled paper, which serves as a contrast to the subtle shades of the water colours. She has selected three, rather unusual vegetables, each with a beautiful flowering habit.
