Biography of Riky Van Deursen

Dutch based, self taught, living in Amsterdam. Painting for me is a journey in which my feelings and the exploration of various techniques and colors are the key elements.
My colorful abstract works are showing my love for nature, flowers, trees and all their beautiful colors. I enjoy nature on my daily walks, I look at the trees, the flowers, the shapes, the colors and then I translate the images in my mind and my emotion connected to that image to the canvas in my own style.
I paint flowers and trees not the way they are, but the way I feel them. So my abstract paintings respond to what I feel being in nature: abundance, joy, happiness, blessed and grattitude.
Besides painting, I developed a passion for photography, which teaches me to look consciously at things on my walks.
