International. Contemporary. Art.
Eva Meenhorst (Dutch, living in UK) “My art is colourful, happy and big. My paintings fall into three distinct styles. The first are the colourful abstracts. The second style consists mainly of black dancing female silhouettes. Most of my commissions I get for the third -‘Connected Forever’-style; I recreate a family story through the painting which start with symplistic, personalised drawings with the connection of brothers and sisters symbolised by a ball of wool which unravels through the family but is always in the background. I have shipped pieces both nationally and internationally to countries including Spain, Turkey, Holland, Switzerland, Hong Kong and New Zealand.”
“Only in 2013, when all of my (4) children were in fulltime school, I started experimenting with oils and brushes on oversized canvasses. Within a year I had my first exhibitions in the UK and the Netherlands.”
