Nelly van Hijfte
Teacher Oil painting

Nelly van Hijfte has been painting all her life, inspired by the daily events. Through her eyes, reality becomes very special and often there’s a wise lesson and sometimes subtle criticism on the establishment in it. Always with a fine sense of humor. Nelly is a professional painter since 1970, her canvases are and have always been colourful and powerful. She has her own, narrative style which sometimes tends towards surrealism and she paints her original subjects with a broad gesture. Her pseudonym is ‘Tim’ and that is always the simple, recognizable signature on all her works.

Marina Kulik is a full time artist, dividing her time between autonomous painting, monumental projects and teaching. As an award-winning artist she exhibits internationally and her artwork resides in galleries and private collections worldwide. “For me teaching art is an amazing challenge. You have to deliver the message so that it really comes across. I aim to get the best artwork out of every individual – including myself”.

Christie is out of the running for a while, she will be replaced and represented by Tracy Greenwood (see below).
One of Luc Veger’s original students, Christie creates in bronze and clay, using a variety of techniques and styles.
