Welcome! My name is Philine van der Vegte, and I am a painter. My work is fairly realistic, in a loose style. The subjects are close to home and the farm where I live; people around me, farm animals and Dutch landscapes. I love to paint portraits and will gladly make a commissioned portrait for you, from life.

In the past year, as a graduation project, I have painted my village Katwoude. It is a small farming village, by the edge of the IJsselmeer in the Netherlands. I have painted landscapes, farm animals and farmers, mostly on a big scale (up to 3 meters wide). Watch a two minute video of the project here. In the coming year, I intend to continue with the large scale animal paintings.
