Dutch artist, Hedi (pronounced Hay-d) was born in Voorburg in the Netherlands and eventually she settled in the province of Brabant.
She was a well-known local figure who began painting in the 1980’s, both for pleasure and for commercial commissions. Hedi worked mainly in watercolour but also used pastels, acrylics and gouache. Her dream came true in September 1994 when, at the age of 50, she opened her own atelier (studio) and gallery in the Spoorlaan in Etten-Leur.
From her studio, she gave lessons in watercolour to groups of both adults and children, while her husband provided a framing service for her own work.
Her wide-ranging subject matter included portraits, animals, landscapes, buildings and gardens.
Hedi would be overjoyed to know that people are still enjoying her Kunst (Dutch for Art) and that it forms a part of someone’s collection.
We are indebted to Hedi’s daughter, Karina, for providing Forge Arts with this collection of work.
