About

Unique Watercolor Paintings from a Portland, Oregon expat living in the Netherlands

Hello and thank you for visiting my shop! This is a one woman operation out of Leiden, a small but mighty city in the Netherlands. I am actually a Portland, Oregon native and moved to Holland in the summer of 2016.

My journey to opening this shop has been a lifetime in the making. I have always been creating in some form or another. My mom loves to tell the story about how I painted every piece of furniture I could get my hands on in my bedroom growing up. It's true. I even painted the sides of the little black and white television and the faces of the giant box stereo speakers I purchased at Goodwill.

For many years I poured my creative energy into interior decorating, mostly personal and some professional. Last year my good friend, and insanely talented artist in Portland taught a watercolor workshop. I had never worked with watercolor before, and I was hooked after attending her class. Over the following months I developed a method I loved, and have been painting ever since!

Now that my husband Pieter, our dog Django, and cat Eskimo have relocated to the Netherlands, I am finding myself continually inspired by the landscapes and colors. These inspirations have fueled my work and I am so excited to share it with you!

Oh! What's with the name? My name is Keven, and I am a girl. Hence "girlkeven". It started as a high school nickname and I never seemed to grow out of it. I could not imagine any other appropriate name for my shop or blog.
