Ursula Kuiper Artist Stylist Designer, with fine art paintings collected worldwide.
Has a strong aesthetic sense, an alert observer.
Loves the pure act of painting and blending, using bright colours, organic and bold clear forms.
Ursula has been creating ever since she can remember, going back at the age of two and continues.
All of her paintings and illustrations start life with drawing - collaging materials on paper or directly on canvas, fabric or a hard surface. Graphically and organically composed: flat forms and lines, some transformed into the 3 dimensional.
Ideas come out of her head, like a film.
Inspo: a subject, an object, a fragrance, a colour, a moment.
May 1992 – Present
