Artist profile

Pic by JD Creative

My name is Noortje, 30-and-a-bit years old and living in the Netherlands.
I am a self taught artist. I paint a variety of subjects and styles. I might pour my heart onto a canvas with an abstract painting, or focus my mind by doing something realistic. But whatever I do, it always has bright colours and big contrasts.

How this Dutchie started her doodles

I always loved to draw. But then I grew up and the only time something took shape was during idle moments in boring meetings. Until people started telling me they liked my doodles, and I realised I loved making them.

So I started doodling on purpose and the doodles turned into recognisable shapes. Those shapes got bigger and better and suddenly actual paint was involved...
