Art has always been a part of Marika Langs life. She was born in an artist-family where the father was a painter and a skulpter. Mom Ruth, a trained actress, changed her line of work and became a teacher in drawings. Already at the age of seven Marika Lang participated in her first gathering-collection. She continued to draw under her fathers influense but also her fathers colleges gave her advice and help. Marikas career started with her painting traditional landscapes and later she moved on to both abstract and surrealistic motives that finally developed into her naive pictures where Marika has found her way of expressing herself.
