Liesbeth Nieuwenhuijse

Who is Liesbeth Nieuwenhuijse?

I started painting in 1988. For many years I took classes with professional painters who taught me free painting and model painting. I prefer using oil paint, but often I use acrylics and sometimes pastel as well.

How I come to my themes? Mostly what I see around me inspires me. This may be some image in a newspaper, or something that happens on the street. It does not really matter what the subject is; what matters is the way the subject interacts with me. The painting should tell a “story”.

What I want to achieve is that those who see my work experience similar feelings as I did when I began the painting.

Liesbeth Nieuwenhuijse (1937) lives and works Amsterdam.
