Biography of Tineke Kleij-Van Den Boomen

"It is vulnerability which gives her value to faith" - Ferrucci
She is living and working as an artist in Sint Oedenrode, a village in the south of the Netherlands. She is autodidact.
Her paintings arise from what she hears and feels out of the emptiness and the silence in her heart.
The German art historian and writer Helmut Orpel characterizes Tineke’s work as follows:
"Much of her work displays the dissolution of shape. The original shape can barely be distinguished, yet it can be recognized. The distinctions between shape and space, between fantasy and reality are still there, but are put into perspective by their dissolving shape."
Tineke’s work has been displayed at various exhibitions both here and abroad and is included in a number of art guides both nationally as internationally.
Having endured cancer, Tineke allowed herself to become a child again, so she could put her true feelings into her life and her work. She does not want to conform to any art rules in any way. She allows herself the freedom to do what she wants to do, without being restricted by any rules whatsoever.
Tineke learnt that taking responsibility lies at the core of our actions, our happiness and our misery. Consequently, we can never blame anyone else for our situation. Thoughts of blame, atonement, sin and morals no longer trouble her.
Tineke has overcome cancer. Her illness has enabled her to grow.
