From an early age Dominique has been busy painting and drawing. At the age of eleven she discovered the oil paint and a whole new world opened up to her. After high school, Dominique went to the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, where she graduated in 1994. Here she did a four-year course in Autonomous 2D, graphics and painting. Working with pastel chalk and pencil was added later. Animals and nature have always been her source of inspiration. She likes to portray the reality and beauty of these animals as well as possible. She also uses considerable light / dark contrast in her work, making the image more powerful. Dominique likes to portray her subject closely and fairly penetratingly, in order to involve the viewer well.
