Over het werk
This is a sculpture cast in Jesmonite, an acrylic-modified gypsum composite, which feels heavy and solid. The figure is finished with metal powders, varnishes, and earth pigments with an absolutely beautiful result. The dancing figure is both abstract and expressionistic, the shape very female and graceful. It will look exquisit in any home interior. It will be securely packaged and sent within 3 days and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Over de kunstenaar
In my free time I love to paint and recently make sculptures. My paintings can be any subject, but the end result will be colourful and often abstract. I try not to be too literal in my presentations, so that people can follow their imagination. My sculptures focus on the female body and I try to show more the shapes and the expression of the female body, than purely realistic representations. I am happy to do commissions as well. I was born and brought up in the Netherlands, but have lived now for 20 + years in the UK. My passion for painting started actually when I moved to England. The beautiful landscape inspired me to start with watercolor, but I slowly moved to acrylics, which is a very versatile medium. It dries quickly, which I use to go over the painting again, adding new colourful forms and shapes. I work in general from images in my head, but also use photos for the initial idea of my painting, which will develop entirely into a new, mostly abstract artwork. I like to paint with a lot of colours and acrylic mediums to create a textured, lively and interesting painting. My studio is my creative haven, with all my paintings around me to inspire me for more work! Less
I am a retired translator/teacher and have worked as much as possible on my paintings for the last few years.
