Initially making drawings and watercolours, I continued working in acrylics and combining various techniques. In the beginning I mainly painted figuratively, but now I have moved on to abstract, choosing the colours on the base of the mood of the moment.
During my 35-year experience as a painter I have been able to develop my own style. I take my inspiration from everyday life, a city skyline, a row of trees in the sun. Abstract will never be tedious to me: I am enormously attracted to it and challenges me to try out new forms and techniques.
I keep doing courses to further my art development, visit artists to develop my techniques.
“An ultimate challenge for me is to encourage the viewer/art lover to give his/her own opinion and meaning to my paintings”. My work relates of a “story-with-emotion” allowing the viewer to individually discover, feel and interpret the work.
Contemporary naive realism After many paintingroads as, landscape, portrait, and abstract, I paint for quite some time the topic “” Crazy “bottles”. I paint the simplicity in line in any bottle, that’s exactly what’s in combination with the other bottles, the whole of a particular overall picture. My whole compiled own color palette I adjust to playfully. The still lifes, get a unique face. No eggs on a dish, strawberries in backlight or old pots and pans. I tries on inimitably if possible loosen me painting, by a perfectly private road. By an application of the stylization of Morandi in consultation with the naive view of Henri Rousseau, make that my “crazy” bottles “” have a place found within the Dutch naive realism. A restrained use of colour, a firm and sensitive lines and a refined light,
The starting point for her paintings is a moment of inspiration associated with a certain place, followed by a journey of exploration to find the tools to translate this to the flat surface of the canvas. Her goal is a harmonious, colourful, and vivid composition, in which people can wander and set aside their own reality.
Her work is in private collections in Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Argentina.
Paint artist : Abstract paints made with acrylic and materials
Céline STEFFGENN is French and lives close to Paris in France.
Initially introduced to the art world by sculpting and other various techniques, she was found herself most attracted to acrylic paint.
She decided to explore this technique by including materials such as : mortar, sand, resin… which allowed her to associate the sight and the sense of touch, and thus create works from her inspiration such as pieces that capture light.

Ineke Duyndam is a clear self-taught. After attending her first drawing lessons she felt that there were more opportunities for her in the paint. She also has several lessons followed in as many different disciplines. Was she at the beginning still active in figurative work, Ineke going away was her searching for her own style. Her passion for clothes and entertaining and all kinds of fabrics, her education at the secondary school with among others the subjects of art history and textile art as well as her work as a fashion consultant, helped her with it. After attending a course “painting with emotion” everything came together.
On her paintings Ineke sticking various natural materials into a composition. Then she chooses the colors, put spiritual music (hard) and is loose. Always surprising that water and clouds often be found in her work. Actually not strange again when you know that she was born and raised surface on the ocean and its constellation Pisces.
Whether on canvas or wood scaffold, the result of her inner explosion is always surprising. Every light, every part of the day, giving new dimension and color to her work. Ineke’s abstract shapes and colors is unique. Fans and viewers see their own images and feelings in the painting works.
Her works now hang in lovers in several European countries, but even in New York (USA).
