Liesbeth Werink (1969) creates cheerful paintings in bright colors. Favorite subjects are nature, landscapes, animals and (happy) people. With her paintings she wants to convey the beauty of people and nature to her spectators.
As a child she already loved drawing and painting. Grown up in the open countryside, she often went out into nature to study the flora and fauna. She could (and still can!) greatly enjoy the colors, smells and shapes that can be found in nature. Around 40 she picked up painting again. She naturally processed her passion for nature in her paintings. First as an autodidact, later she developed through various courses. Since 2012 she has been taking painting and art history lessons at the Vrije Academie Nunspeet.
Her typical own style can be described as: clear and colorful, precisely, layered and finished with strong contour lines.
Liesbeth likes to experiment directly on the canvas and not sketch first. This way, it makes it a beautiful process in which the work constantly changes of color, shape and composition. Just as long until the result is satisfying enough for her.
