Evelien is a fellow at the Scaliger Institute, at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands. Since 2011, she is preparing a manuscript for publication: "Sir Constantine Huygens and Brittain II."
This will follow the preceding volume:
"Sir Constantine Huygens and Brittain I, a pattern of cultural exchange".
Working within both tradition and abstraction, my work is representational, and the subject is mostly landscape and still life. My intention in making art is pointing towards recognition of the quiet beauty that can be found in unspoiled landscape and uncomplicated still life.
Through observation, traditional or unconventional composition; the play of light and the transformation of colour and tone, I strive to evoke an appreciation of the pure and simple; a wish to preserve, to suggest a connection to the timelessness of natural beauty.
Evelien has over 30 years experience teaching experience. She will resume teaching upon the completion of her current project at the University of Leiden's Scaliger Institute.
