I am Ans Geurts and I live in the Netherlands (Arnhem).
In the late 1980s, early 1990s I attended Art Academy. I did mostly drawing and painting. After the Academy I worked a few years as a production designer, mostly short movies and kids' television movies. It's quite a hectic life: living in Arnhem, working mostly in Amsterdam, lots of travel, sometimes working 14 hours a day, sometimes no work at all…
So I decided to find a regular job, get some regular income and I became an office manager. I married, built a house, got me a dog :-) And I divorced, relocated, lost my dog, changed job and started to create art again.
I use oil and acrylic paint for the paintings. For the collages I mix my own drawings and photos and occasionally (free to use) images from the Internet, mixed with soft pastels, colored pencils, paint, ink and charcoal. I scan the collage to my iMac, in high resolution, and enhance it if necessary (color, sharpness, light etc).
You will find here also, in another gallery, some digital art works.
Thanks for visiting!
