  • Biography

    As long as I remember I have been interested in art, in drawing and colouring. After a lot of traveling and life experiences I started full time painting in India in 1988 with oil paint and the pallet-knife experimenting with colours in abstract mostly canvas paintings who often turn out as landscapes, seascapes, clouds or cosmic vibrations. Some are very vibrant, emotional, with strong colours, others are just very quiet monochromes with shades of one tone, all creating a certain feeling or atmosphere.

    Being as well a musician it is in my art like in music expressing inner emotion without representing the real world. Many of my paintings are a dream world, the world I would love to live in. A memory of ancient prehistoric times,

    I have had exhibitions in many different countries like India, France, Holland, Germany, USA, Australia, Spain and Portugal.

    My paintings are with collectors in India, France, Holland, North Korea, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Australia, USA, UK, Norway, Spain and Portugal.

    SAROJA...(Saroja van der Stegen. Venlo, 1956 - Holland) confesses to being drawn to the colour and warmth of the Mediterranean and after travelling and living in many different countries, has settled in Pollensa - Majorca in 1992. Her studio is alive with canvases of chromatic intensity and variety. Although her work is abstract, in her paintings one can perceive, like a distant echo, the landscapes and objects that Saroja synthesises with the firm and yet subtle stroke of the spatula. She unites intensity of colour with a rich range of hues which make her a continuing force - and heiress - of what has come to be called "Escuela Mallorquina".
    Her work is on exhibit in Madrid for the first time, after a wide variety of exhibitions in Majorca during the last few years...
