About Lida


Painting is a continueous and inspiring dialogue with canvas, paint and matter. Materials, landscapes, events and impressions provide for inspiration. The paintings are created applying layer  upon layer of acrylic paint in combination with  materials such as incense, lead, paper, copper, silver- and goldleaf. I also create my own paint using natural pigments. The weathered surface adds to the character of the paintings.

Figurative elements such as human faces, bodyparts and landscapes can often be seen in the paintings. The observer may use her/his imagination to discover and give meaning to the paintings. Lida’s paintings are created based on abstracted sketches.
The compositions cannot be given an exclusive meaning and are a combination of observations, emotions and experiences.

I have lived in the Middle- and Far-East and in Africa and this is often reflected in her paintings. I have been through the fashion design and dressmaking vocational school, took painting lessons from Joop de Chene (Kunstklassen in Belgium) Qiangle Liang and Elly van Baalen, and  studied art and other subjects at the ‘Vrije Academie’.
