'Every time I start a new project all kinds of things happen to me.
Everything is going to flow, fizzle and I just want to create!'
My name is Jacqueline Nieuwendijk, born in 1964 in Amsterdam.
During my studies as a fashion designer in Amsterdam, I developed
a preference for incorporating existing fabrics into sophisticatedly finished new clothing.
Working with fabric challenged me to start applying it in other ways,
in combination with paper and paint, and thus sometimes surprising pieces of work were created.
After training in mixed media, I discovered this way of working and I can express everything in it.
Each piece of paper/fabric has its own personality and character.
It is like a brush stroke waiting to be placed in the right spot.
I enjoy the challenge of transforming ordinary pieces of paper and fabric into
unusual pieces of art that grab your attention from afar and surprise you up close.
