Agnes was born in Holland, in 1973. She read Philosophy at Amsterdam University, specialising in Eastern Philosophy. During and after her University years she dedicated a lot of time to studying Fine art and taking art classes.
Influenced both by the exquisite, revealing light of early Dutch paintings and by the simple beauty found in Japanese ceramics and art, Agnes paints with focus and clarity. Her preferred subjects are single ceramic or silver bowls and vessels.
In her paintings one recognises Agnes' Dutch roots, through the delicate interplay of light, shadows and reflections. She studied and taught herself techniques used by the Dutch Masters to enhance luminosity and depth of colour. The colours she blends are subtle and muted. The results are quiet, contemplative and contemporary.
