About Hesther van Doornum

 
 
  • Biography
    "I am a painting woman, painting women. I have always loved to draw and paint their round and soft forms, both body and face. And the Eyes- there is a whole world hidden in the eyes. For me every painting is an achievement when I succeed in painting real, soulful women; when I succeed in capturing a moment in time, to make it count forever. As an artist I also love to see when my art moves people emotionally; they inspire me and I get to inspire others, it's a wonderous continuous cycle."

    Powerful, sensual women who are not frightened to show their vulnerability. These are the women on her canvases. "This is me" they seem to proclaim. The open attitude of her models radiates vulnerability as well as strength. This is enhanced by their transparency. The characters flow as it were, into the background. You can  say that for her these faces are her canvasses; the landscape of women.
