My name is Esther Barend, born in an artistic family on the 2nd December 1964, Eindhoven.(the Netherlands) After finishing my study I worked and lived in Paris and Amsterdam and afterwards established myself in Eindhoven as a designer of jewellery. Several years later I started classes at the Academy of Arts in Arendonk, Belgium, where I developped my personal style in painting.

What I cannot say with words, I express with coulours, motion en forms. I hardly ever paint with a brush. My main tools are my fingers, which allows me to be more in touch with the canvas. Furthermore I use a pallete-knife, spatula, little sticks, glue, charcoal and pieces of pastel-chalk. The scratches of my nails and some fingerprints in the paint are completing my work with a real personal signature.

My paintings characterize themselves by spontanity, dynamics, little details and intense coulours. Standing in front of the white canvas, I follow my feelings. Often I start with a few lines or forms of my imagination. The colours are mixed on the canvas and I work with a lot of layers, thin and thick, which causes a beautiful raw structure. By mixing invented and spontaneaus forms the result is well-balanced.
Being inspired by the coulours of nature, the actual season, impressing events, makes me find myself again. During the day I am looking, with artists eyes, at the world around me getting surprised time after time.

I work with acryllic paint in combination with glue, charcoal, pieces of pastel-chalk, paper, sand etc.. on canvas made of cotton or linen, which is tightend on a wooden chassis with a thickness of 1m57 inch (4 cm). The sides are also painted, so a frame is not necessary. Besides canvas, I paint objects which are designed and manufactured by myself, like totem poles of 6 foot (200 cm) high. Painting has become essential for me, a way of living. It is possible to order paintings and objects completed with your personal wishes.
