I’m Eva,

As an artist, I live and work in Amsterdam.

In my own paintings, I try to capture the human emotion. I compose the images by looking and observing the plethora of human expression.

To create my pictures, I’m experimenting with new – and unorthodox – methods like a sponge, to achieve all sorts of textures. To me, emotion is not limited to the eyes or facial expression, it can also be part of the skin or even clothes.

In recent series I have focussed on faces of refugees. I’m documenting moods like hope and expectation, but also the darker moments.

My canvasses are larger than life, because to me, the human emotion can be overwhelming.
