Biography

Louise van Terheijden / Biography

“Her recent body of work consists mainly of watercolor paintings.  When painting, van Terheijden follows her intuition and produces a mixture of colorful abstract and figurative compositions.  Inspiration can come from anywhere like a thought, a mood, a feeling or an emotion; or from simple things like a pebble, leaf, or flower.  van Terheijden finds inspiration in subjects that give us joy and strives to capture the feeling of happiness and contentedness “to just be” in her work.  Her work conveys a tranquil moment or a poetic experience, like moment frozen in time”.
