Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. I often work with models and can't answer the phone then, so contact by e-mail or sms/ whatsapp is the most convenient for me.
You are welcome to visit my atelier with an appointment.

This video was shot at the plein air painting festival Noordwijk 2017, where I was nominated for the Royal Talens Rembrandt Award
I passed the tentamen (pre graduation year assessment) at Wackers Academy and have started my graduation project now that will last until June 2019.
In June, I spent a month as a full time student of Nicholas Beer in Sarum Studio of Fine Art, Salisbury (UK), to learn about the sightsize method for portraiture and figure painting.
I was also accepted as a member and curator in the Exhibition Comittee of De Boterhal in Hoorn: "De ballotagecommissie was unamiem in haar oordeel over het werk van Philine. Uit haar werk spreekt een eigenzinnige manier om onderwerpen in beeld te brengen. Gepaard gaand met een rake schildertechniek ontstaan pakkende beelden met een geheel eigen sfeer."
In 2016 I won a prize at plein air festival Pintar Rapido Amsterdam and was allowed to skip the second year at art school. One of my child portraits was picked for the Museum Night at the DIVA Museum in Antwerp, Belgium.
In 2015, after a few years of part time courses, I started the five year day program at the Wackers Academy for figurative art in Amsterdam. I was also accepted as a member of the Waterlandse Kunstkring.
