Hermien Koen

Drawings - Paintings

Discipline: drawing, painting (self taught artist)

Hermien Koen (1957) lives and works in Leeuwarden (The Netherlands). I studied theology (Theologische Universiteit Kampen 1975-1984) and shifted focus to visual arts. Human figure, portrait and still life are my main themes. I work in acrylic paint, partly in combination with aquarelle crayon on paper as well as on canvas. I prefer short poses when I draw from a model, afterwards selecting the best out of a series.
