My name is Marianne and I am a designer born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Studied fashion design and graphic design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. I have worked many years as a graphic designer for advertising studios, industrial design studios and corporate design studios. In 2004 I started my own creative design studio called 12PUNT3. Became an art toy collector which eventually lead to becoming a plush toy designer and vinyl toy customizer. Now I work under my own name as a designer/artist from my home studio in The Netherlands accompanied by two big Ragdoll cats, Hummer Bumblebee and Healey Firefly, and lots of toys.

You are welcome to take a look at my portfolio and read my blog to get to know more about who I am and what I do. Thanks for stopping by!
