About Leny Meulendijks-wagemakers
I was born in 1943 in Denekamp, Netherlands.After my two sons became independend, I deceided to study at the Academy of arts and follow an old dream.I love colours and I'm inspired mainly by surrealistic and magic-realistic artists.Currently I'm living and working in Sint-Oedenrode in Holland.After completing her study at the Academy,Leny began searching for sources of inspiration and her own style.At first she found inspiration in objects from her surroundings,resulting in series of still life paintings.Later she focussed more on her own imagination and perception.Traveling memorys, personal and global events and emotions are now the inspirationsource.Using images based on every day reality she tries to create a different reality,a different world; her world.She likes the spectator to have a look in that world, a world wich sometimes has a strange feel about it..Besides "story's" and "emotions" "portrets" are also a part of her works
