Hinke Veenstra, born 1965 in Emmen, studied graphic design at the art academy Minerva in Groningen (1985-1991). After years of working as a graphic designer, she focused more and more on painting. This passion rooted itself throughout the years while following a painting course by Hans Noordermeer who taught at “it Toanhûs” in Joure. The overpowering feeling was to be allowed to play and experiment undisturbed, in this period until 2009. Hinke likes to look for shapes and compositions without any direct relationship towards each other or any kind of restrictions by a client. The love for the canvas and playing with style and form has only grown further over time. That playful style is characterizing her work and at the same time, it does not really let itself be put in a box.
