Agnes was born in Holland in 1973. She read Philosophy at Amsterdam University, specialising in Eastern Philosophy. During and after her University she dedicated a lot of time to Fine Art and taking art classes.
Influenced by both the exquisite, revealing light of early dutch paintings and by the simple beauty found in Japanese ceramics and art, Agnes paints with focus and clarity Her preferred subjects are simple bowls and vessels. In her paintings one recognises Agnes’ Dutch roots through the delicate interplay of light shadows and reflections. She studied and taught herself techniques used by the Dutch Masters to enhance luminosity and depth of colour. The colours she blends are subtle and muted the results are quiet and contemplative, reflective and promising.
