At 17 Maren left Denmark to start university in Scotland, however, after a brief visit to London she was immediately signed by Vogue where the then editor Bee Miller took her under her wing becoming one of the world’s best known faces during the sixties and early seventies. Maren is a true creative, her journey through modelling, her life as an author (her book ‘From Home to Home’ is completely wonderful for anyone who is leaving home for the first time) and more recently her charming and joyful paintings. They make me so happy to look at and smile, just like the artist herself. I hope this leaves you feeling the same.
