In the wondrous process of creating, we connect to our soul and souls connect because of it - that's just like magic to me.
I am a Dutch artist: inviting, stubborn, inventive, sensitive, and a bit of an activist at heart. I live, travel en work in our self-converted campervan: it's just big enough to serve as a tiny home for my husband and I ánd as a tiny studio!
When I create I feel so connected! To make something that hasn't been on this planet before is just magic to me and that's probably why I've been creating for as long as I can remember. Painting feels like a second language to me and I love experimenting with the different materials. I'm currently most in love with oil paints and sometimes gouache, but I will always integrate the fluent translucency of a watercolor painting in my work and the expressiveness of charcoal in my pieces. At heart, I feel like I'm an impressionist painter, with sometimes abstract and sometimes realism splurges. Besides paints, I enjoy adding embroidered details to a painting.
When I'm not painting I love to read, to listen or make music and to go out on adventures. We run a very open household and both value community deeply, so you can often find us sharing a coffee (loaads of coffee) or meals with friends and family.
After 5 amazing months of exploring the Norwegian winter, we're staying a few months in our parent's hometown in the Netherlands before we set out again. Follow the adventures @littlemywanders on Instagram
about Anneke Koster-Koetsier
I'm very fortunate to share passions with my mother, who fulfills the role of studio assistant since September 2020. Driven and endlessly creative, she makes sure your packages get packaged beautifully, prints are printed and quality checked, our inventory remains somewhat organized and so much more! She's vibrant and enthusiastic and welcomes everybody with open arms and cups of coffee. You might also meet her at one of the live events we attend, such as art fairs or studio routes. Trained by her entrepreneurial parents(my grandparents ) she has a quick way with words, has many ideas and loves discussing opportunities with you!
