Statement

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun” (Mary Lou Cook).

As a mixed media artist I like to experiment with a diverse range of mediums and trying out new combinations such as printmaking, digital processes, painting, drawing, papercutting, assemblage and artists' books. I'm inspired by textures, patterns, colours, tones and shapes found in nature and often use natural materials in my work. Recently I have developed an interest in combining traditional printmaking processes such as collagraphy and etching with 3D print technology. The new possibilities that emerge from this interchange between new and old technologies has inspired me to have a broader approach to making contemporary art.

Biography

Fenneke (also known as Fenfolio) is a mixed-media artist living and working in Banchory, Aberdeenshire. After moving to Scotland from The Netherlands in 2005 she set up a photo library which was sold in 2010. Since then she has been developing her art skills via various courses such as Grays School of Art in Aberdeen. Every year Fenneke takes part in North East Open Sudios and other local exhibitions like Fabric of the Land at Aberdeen University. Various artworks are now in private collections around the world. In 2017 she had her first artists' book exhibited at Bankside Gallery, London, during the National Open Print Exhibition. In 2018 two other artists' books were selected, shown and sold at the RSA Open in Edinburgh. In the same year she also received the Visual Artist and Craft Maker Award for a two-week printmaking residency at Zea Mays Printmaking in the USA.
