Rinske Dekker's Profile

About

Hello, my name is Rinske Dekker ,
my friends and family call me Rins.
In my home studio in Amsterdam, I make small and tiny paintings and drawings. And from these images I make prints, rings, brooches and necklaces
I also do custom work , mainly portraits of pets, people and even houses.

My work is inspired by most things cute, beautiful & odd. Vintage family photo's, comics, fantasy, sci fi, fairy tales, old picture books, & lowbrow-, pop- and indie art are also current inspirations. And don't forget all the wonderful art and artists I find on Etsy and Flickr!

*

I hope that my work triggers the imagination and let you come up with many stories.

The materials I love to work with most are acrylic paint and graphite and color-pencil. On canvas, paper and recently I fell in love with painting ánd drawing on (found) wood.
I love almost every color but I do have 3 favorites: turquoise (and every similar color), orange and soft-pink. I also love the gray of a graphite pencil
I always varnish (matte) my paintings and fixate my drawings

I love to do commissions or collaborations, just convo or email me : )!
