Interests and Personality
|Biography||Engelina Zandstra is a Dutch artist living in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Since 1992 I have been following courses in Amsterdam in painting,
etching, silk-screen painting and modelling.
During the last years I have concentrated myself on painting.
Art education : Autodidact.
My way of working is spontaneous. It starts with a concept, an idea in my mind,
which is in most cases not well-defined.
After setting a rough outline on the canvas, I let myself be guided by the forms and colours
that develop during the process of painting.
Sometimes the beginning is abstract, and then at some point human figures are
coming into shape. As if the human presence then is necessary for further inspiration.
Colour is very important for me : the alchemy of colour.
It gives expression to the atmosphere of my work.
I call my paintings 'Landscapes of the Mind', because they are reproductions of the images
that are stored in my imagination.
