received an honourable mention!
The first and biggest painting (180x180cm) from the series for my children’s book received an honourable mention for the Dutch Portrait Award (De Nederlanse Portretprijs). My work and that of the 50 nominees can be seen in
Slot Zeist, the Netherlands, until September 26th.
I finally had the courage to start recording myself and my painting process in order to make video’s for YouTube. Not much content there yet, but there soon will be more!
Read about my artistic process,
my struggles and my triumphs, my thoughts and my dreams.
Born in Groningen in 1993, I now live in Warffum, a small and quiet village in the north of the Netherlands.
When the weather doesn’t allow me to paint outdoors, I work in my studio in the city centre of Groningen.
Though many different subjects make me want to grab my brushes and oils,
nature is my biggest source of inspiration and trying to capture its changing beauty is what I like to do the most.
Since I’ve lived on the isle Sardinia as a child, I have a special preference for its rough landscape
and I try to go there a month a year to immerse myself in its variety of colours.
To keep improving my artistic skills beyond the plein-air painting, I’ve started a challenging new project
that combines both working from imagination and observation.
Inspired by my childhood fantasies and pushed by my husband, I’m writing my first children’s book,
which is the basis for a special series of very big paintings.
painted from life
The past years I haven’t been accepting portrait commissions since I feared that would mean I’d have to paint using photo’s (which I don’t like at all). However, since I love painting people from life, you can now buy a portrait painted at my studio in Groningen in approximately three sittings.
Prices start at € 2.500,- for an oil painting of 60×80 cm.
