Luz – Contemporary Acrylic Paintings
Luz (Marloes Bloedjes, 1979) is a Dutch painter, graphic artist and educator. She was born with glaucoma and lost her right eyesight at a very young age. Her left eye was saved by multiple operations to relieve high eye pressure (this ultimately causes the eye nerve to die) by inserting a valve. Her vision was 35%. At the age of 33, early cataract emerged in her only good eye and her vision dropped to 5%. At that moment, she vowed to be a full time artist and art educator if her eyesight could be restored. Luckily, it was, even to about 70%!
Since that joyous moment she has created hundreds of abstract paintings on canvas and wood, taught hundreds of children and teens, and tens of adults in her art studio to paint from their inner self. Since 2018, she and her partner, photographer and videographer Anthony Verolme have been creating online painting classes with several themes and materials.
