INSPIRATION

Creativity plays an important role in her life:

"Without creativity no new ideas!"

During a 4-year stay in Slovakia (1996-2000), Eugenie got the opportunity to be a student of Katarina Kemnyova, a famous Slovak painter. She joint several international groups of Artists, f.e. the group of Gwenaelle de Saint Aubin in Paris. Eugenie moved  in 2000 to Madrid for a stay of 8 years. In Madrid she produced and participated in several solo- and collective exhibitions. She also organized inspiration- and painting workshops. In 2008, Eugenie returned to Holland were she started "ARTE SIN LIMITES" an international Art Organization and Gallery. She also joined the Art Academy.

Al these experiences: freedom, Light, movement, music, travelling, interesting encounters and discoveries but also engagement are the sources of her inspiration.

STATEMENT

The Artist and the world.

"The relationship of people with places" is a returning theme in my work. Every person has a story, every piece of art is telling a story. It triggers your imagination and it can touch you deep into your heart. That has been my fascination as an Artist. I see art as a language without words, a way of communication. After a long stay abroad, the world became my field, my studio. I research contemporary themes that touch me and work with used materials matching these subject as i.e. used and damaged moving boxes for the serie " Einde en begin" about refugees.
