Dutch artist Winne creates whimsical pastel scenes with oil and acrylic on canvas. Dolphins, unicorns, and faceted gems spin and combine in Winne's paintings, building layered, luminous dreamscapes. The color and subject matter add to the fantasy feeling of each image. Inspired by her spiritual work, Winne paints images that imagine worlds of pastel animals swirling across the canvas, drawing the eye into her candy-colored embodiment of joy. The cheerful nature of each painting relates to her own uplifting, musical experience in creating each piece. Often, the artist sings while painting, letting the upbeat songs she chooses influence each stroke and choice. The mellifluous planes of mint, coral, and white intersperse with brightly pigmented flowers and butterflies to blend into a single, cohesive experience. Each element is clearly defined and prominent yet fragmented so that, along with the tight color palette, all the images harmoniously intermingle.
Pulling in experiences as a graphic designer and spiritual healer, Winne creates artworks that move with positivity. No portion of each canvas is forgotten, so that each image is completely filled with joy.
Winne currently lives and works in Amsterdam.
