"It's my Structure of Beauty"

view portfolio


It’s always been there, within me, Fleurien. I paint flowers, just as the women in my family have done, generation after generation. A tradition followed throughout the centuries, from Van de Sande Bakhuyzen and Numans, a tradition which I continue, but with my own interpretation, in my way, with my structure. It reflects me. It’s who I am.

I am constantly rediscovering the origins of this family tradition in the floral still lives painted by the women in my family. They are the path to my own artistic language, my structure of beauty, an endless source of inspiration. The branches, the compositions, the careful attention to detail, the symbolism and the extraordinary use of colour. This is the foundation of my work.

Paint, roughly and spontaneously applied, to delicate brushstrokes. Large canvases, graffiti, ink and pastel. It’s my dance, my journey. I allow the traditions of the past to resonate through my contemporary style. It’s my structure of beauty.
