Liesbeth OudshoornOssendrecht Netherlands
As an artist, Lbetho (Liesbeth Oudshoorn) lives her life with the same intensity and passion with which she paints, so much so that art and life become absolutely inseparable for her. Not restricted by rules, styles or techniques, she lets herself be carried away by artistic inspiration and lapses into imagination using the brush to explore pictorial surfaces and spaces connected to emotions, memory and music. As she plays with creating bright and refined compositions, led by a mysterious rhythmical force, she invents forms and colours that are masterly balanced with movement, rhythm, wide brushstrokes and thick layers of matter, thus creating effects of great joy and brightness. Her paintings reveal her deep dive into an unconscious populated with memories and strong impressions. Animals play a starring role in her paintings, she invents and creates her own animals. Liesbeth wants to make the world a better place by giving joy in her painting, but also by donating a large part of her revenue to charity.
