My name is Anja Slijkhuis and I love painting tulips. My first painting is from 2005. I am living in a small village near Rotterdam, where I was also born. Since the beginning, I have been following great painting classes at ” l’Atelier du Jardin” given by Ann van der Meer. She is a wonderful and an inspiring teacher.
Although there is an infinite number of beautiful themes to paint, I have found my passion in tulips. I love to explore our wonderful world and get inspired for fresh new creations. However, tulips will always remain my favourite and recurring theme.
I am keen on creating “blow ups” and letting the light shine in my works. I want to feel the vibration and the movement in my tulips. „I just lov’ them!”
“There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”Vincent van Gogh
