My name is Katja van den Bogaert. I have my own art studio Anna K art. It is my first and middle name but than the other way around. I am a self-taught abstract artist. Besides that, I work freelance in the exposition commission of a museum. My education is dance academy, in which I worked for several years. I also worked for KLM, the Dutch airline and owned a tea company. Meditation and interior styling where inspiring courses I followed. That all together cultivated in the art studio Anna K art
I am deeply drawn to exploring the relationship between the seen and the unseen. I believe my inner world and outer reality are connected, that we create our reality. As such my paintings are a reflection of my personal journey. In my art studio, I work intuitively on painting adding, layering and blending. Until the seen and the unseen harmonize with my spirit and resonate with my soul. Art remains as a strong contender of how we share our thoughts and ideas. It has the possibility of changing one thoughts, create other feeling and expand to new ideas. Just one new idea can change a person’s perception.
What is the rhythm of your hearth, come as you are, be as you wish, feel it now. Be kind, be happy, trust, detach, create and thrive. What is the rhythm of YOUR hearth?
The material I use is a linen canvas. I work with acrylic paint and start a la prima, with a brush, roller or sponge to build layers. I love to create a thick, raw base. I repeat this until it has reached an interesting diversity of texture, colour and form. A medium flat brush is used to create stripes in several directions so that the painting does not look flat but that it gets a depth which triggered the eyes in different directions. A bigger hake brush is used to finalize the last layers of waves. I react on what is happening on the canvas. The first inspiration for the artwork is nature, my environment and water. In the Netherlands where I live, we have our backyard at the river. Nature is all around us and the beauty, and sometimes rawness is the start for creating. Depending on the season, the water can be wavy, calm or fun. The wind can make it energetic and gives a lot of beautiful moments. Rain creates a lot of textures and forms. When it is sunny, people are swimming, playing and using their boats for pleasure. It all gives a diversity of energy. I like to make deeper connection to the theme. To me water is a very healing element. What refers to unity and new society, operating more and more through the heart? What makes you heart beating? The highest and most beautiful form of the element water is a human being with universal love and is more and more conscious and comes from wisdom. Spontaneous like a child trusting, flowing, the creating process is not controlled by the thinking mind. To create, respect others and follow your own heartbeat.
