Artist Statement I am Johanna Geurts and I live in the Netherlands (Arnhem) with my husband and dog Bliksem, a Briard, (French sheepdog).

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 my art faded into the background.

Just recently I lost my job, so now I have more time to spend. And I missed being busy with art for some time and I started to draw and paint 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!
