About Anniek Verholt

Anniek Verholt is an artist from the Netherlands, based in London and Brighton (UK).

She exhibits her work internationally and teaches abstract art at the Hampstead School in London. She has studios in Brighton and London.

Anniek completed a BA in Art Therapy from the University of Applied Sciences in Leiden in '96 -'00 and immersed herself in an in-depth study into the therapeutic use and impact of art and the creative process. After some years in Greece she established herself in the UK where she works as an artistic therapist with private clients and organisations. Most recently she started a therapeutic arts project in a London male prison.

Her interest in colour and light led her to studying glass. She holds an MA in Glass from the University of Sunderland (2004) where she specialised in kiln formed and sandcast glass techniques. In this time the explored the various ways public art could have a positive impact on wellbeing.

Verholt's abstract paintings represent her curiosity and studies in the complex journey of the mind. Her paintings are rich in layers, texture and movement.

Her work is exhibited internationally and is part of several private collections. She has published a first book which can be ordered from her website.
