My name is Jennifer Bakker-Olsem, I was born and raised in Utrecht.
Nowadays I live in Woerden with my husband and three kids.
I love all different forms of creativity. I’ve noticed over the years that the emphasis can lay on different forms or on some simultanously. Through speaking in public, singing, writing (songs, poems and wordart), theatre or painting I express the processes that are/were going on in my life or just the urge to create.
Many things can be inspiring to me: God, photo’s, nature, a song, a poem, a thought, a movie, other peoples art and my adventures in life.
A painting, a photo, a picture, a stature can say so much more than words. I think in pictures. It’s a language that is easy to understand for all people. And can bring a message straight through the heart. Positive or negative. It brings forth emotions, it touches. That’s why I gave it the name: art thouches. I hope that my paintings or other forms of art will touch you and inspire you.
Since february 2014 I have been given painting lessons in the Meerpaal in Woerden until october 2015. I have done this with great pleasure.
Nowadays I am working on my own collection, painting assignments and projects that are coming my way. But if you are interested in taking a private lesson or want to book a workshop, than this is still possible. Fill in the contact form for more information.
You can also order a customized tile with your own quote on it. Or you can order a poster or card of an artwork. Just contact me for the possibilities.
I also speak in churches and for womengroups. I work together with the different projects of Arts Alive, like: Walking Theatre Dolorosa, the Arts Weekend and the Arts Summit.
