Hi, I’m Luz!
There’s a rich inner world inside of every mind. I discovered mine in the darkest time of my life: the period when I wasn’t able to see more than 5%, just with one eye. Turning inside made me discover art and art has been helping me through in a magical way ever since. I made myself a promise: if my eye can be cured, I will definitely choose to be a professional artist. After surgery, my sight was 65%, even the doctors said it was a miracle.
So I had to keep my promise. For 5 years I have been running an art business in the Netherlands. Both in order to make art growing out of my vibrant, colourful inner world and to let others discover their own inner path by making art. I can’t wait to share this world with you!
Painting from your inner world
For me, creating a painting often starts with closing my eyes and see the world inside of me. Sometimes I pick up impressions on my daily walks. I am very inspired by nature and I love mixing colours until I find a deep inner balance. It’s a very intuitive process. I work until everything feels right.
I use a variety of materials and techniques in my work, like paper, textiles and things I collect on my daily walks. Here you will see all my mixed media paintings.
I love painting botanicals, flowers and gardens in a very abstract way. Sometimes, I want to look at a specific flower very closely to create a study of it, like Hibiscus.
Figures & Portraits
I don’t often intend to paint people; they just appear in my work. As a teenager I always drew faces, I guess it’s still in me.
Online Painting Classes
Painting is a wonderful way to express yourself, especially in hard times. It could help you to bring more balance in your life, overcome issues, get outside your mind and meet some new parts of your soul. O, and did I say that painting is big fun?
Painting from your home
In my art classes I encourage you to follow your heart and do what you love. It’s about the process rather than the outcome. But I’ll bet you’ll be having surprising results!
You can watch my video lessons from your PC or tablet and smartphone. My classes are fully compatible with all portable devices (iOS and Android), connected to the internet (classes can be downloaded as well for offline viewing with our app). You get my support and feedback as well as from other students via the comments within the classes and in my private Facebook group. Each class comes with a PDF-workbook including inspiring exercises, inspiring images and background information.
Coming soon… a couple of wonderful abstract painting classes focussed on colour, composition and printing techniques. For these classes our main material is acrylic paint.
Mixed Media Classes
There’s a series of 3 mixed media classes: Pattern Playing, Fantasy Flowers and Mixed Media Angels. In these classes you’ll be working with acrylic paint combined with paper, fabrics, markers, etc..
Painting on Location
In these classes I am showing you my process working (partly) on location. So, If you like being in nature and you want to challenge yourself: paint trees, flowers and landscapes with me!
