Henriette has a passion for bright colours and loves painting big, bold abstracts. She started painting just over 20 years ago and initially painted with oils and brushes. But she found that she was getting a bit too controlled and restricted with the paint brush. In recent years she has discovered poured fluid acrylics and is now able to be much more liberal and expressive. It is a messy, challenging and unpredictable medium, but so much fun and there are so many creative ways to manipulate the fluid paint. The effects can be quite mesmerising. Henriette used to work out of her studio by her house, but has now set up work and exhibition space in downtown New Plymouth at The Art Loft. It is a wonderfully big, upstairs gallery shared by 8 very different and very talented artists, who each have their own space in which to work and exhibit their amazing creations. The Art Loft is open to the public throughout the year as well as during the Arts Trail.
