We are very proud to introduce to you our new artist: Daniëlle van Herk.
Daniëlle is a Dutch painter, living in the South of the Netherlands. She studied textiles and drawing and graphic design and later on in her life interior design. She worked for several years as an interior designer (specialized in colors scheme’s) in her own company Stijl Compagnie. Creativity has always been a common thread in her life and she likes to explore that by doing all kinds of creative workshops like silk-painting, goldsmith, felting, stained glass and photography.
But most of all she loves to paint and at this point in her life she is happy to spend much more time at her studio. A day of painting usually starts with a walk in nature companied by her dog. Back at the studio she puts on some music and lets intuition and sensitivity do their job as she comes in a creative flow.

She likes to work figurative and abstract to give the viewer space to experience the atmosphere and layers of her work and fill in their own feelings and view. The biggest compliment for her is when the viewer constantly discovers new things in her work and is sucked into it, as it were.
