I’m a visual artist working in mixed media, creating contemporary artists’ books, book objects and paper art from my home studio. These are all one-offs and can be organic, dynamic, quiet, powerful, informative, delicate, vibrant, conceptual, experimental or sculptural.
The versatility of paper and the amount of possibilities it offers ignites a continuous flow of ideas in me to experiment with, to learn from and to push the boundaries of my creativity. Using and combining various techniques such as printmaking, digital processes, painting, drawing, papercutting, paperfolding and bookbinding fills me with excitement.
As a keen sea kayaker and mountaineer, I get my inspiration from the textures, patterns, colours, tones and shapes in the great outdoors. When I’m out there in the elements, I feel a deep inner connection with myself and the world around me. I want to hold on to that experience by expressing this connection into a tangible piece of work and make that journey again, this time being guided purely by my intuition. My interest in architecture, climate change, design and construction also influences the way I approach a certain project. It will then be meticiously planned by doing research, making sketches and prototypes. By using different methods, processes and styles, I want to show people what you can do with such a simple yet effective material.




Originally from The Netherlands, Fenneke Wolters-Sinke changed her career as financial planner after emigrating to Scotland. She did several short courses and workshops at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, Edinburgh Printmakers and with established artists. She now works from her home studio in Aberdeenshire. Fenneke investigates the versatility of paper through printmaking, paper sculpture and artists’ books, inspired by natural and geometrical patterns found while sea kayaking, mountaineering or travelling. Her prints and artists’ books have been shown in national and international exhibitions such as North East Open Studios, Aberdeen Art Gallery, University Aberdeen, Bankside Gallery in London, the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh, various libraries in Denver and at Salmon Falls gallery in Massachusetts, USA.

She received the Visual Artist and Craft Maker Award by Creative Scotland in 2018 for a 2-week non-toxic printmaking residency in the USA. In 2023, one of her artists’ book collections was shortlisted for the Scottish Landscape Awards and exhibited at City Art Centre in Edinburgh.
Various works are held in private and public collections.
