Connecting The World - Artist Profile - Elise Eekhout
Before entering the professional art world, Elise Eekhout has been a successful graphic designer for over 20 years. She started her own graphic design company whilst studying at St. Joost Art School (Breda, The Netherlands).
Letters and texts have always been a source of inspiration and wonder for her.
Eekhout combines this fascination of letters and texts with the images she creates in her paintings.
She creates an alternative universe without boundaries. She wants you to experience the freedom of your own fantasy and imagination by entering this dream world through her paintings.
Stories inspire Elise to use parts of the (Dutch) texts in her paintings with sheet metal. The atmosphere and appearance of the artworks are strongly influenced by the incidence of (sun) light.
