Jacqueline Nieuwendijk was born in Amsterdam (1964). During her education as a fashion designer in Amsterdam she developed a preference for incorporating existing fabrics into refined new clothing. Working with fabrics challenged her to use it in different ways, for example in combination with paper and paint. Sometimes surprisingly innovative pieces were created.

“Every time I start a new project, I start to feel all sorts of things. Everything starts flowing, bubbling and all I want to do is create!”

After a workshop in mixed techniques she discovered she absolutely loved working this way. She finds that with this technique her creativity flows. For Jacqueline, every piece of paper or fabric has its own personality and character. It is like a brushstroke waiting to be placed in the right place. She finds it a challenge to transform ordinary materials into unusual pieces of art that draw your attention from far and surprise you from up close.

If the idea is in outline on the canvas, the creation begins. The result is never fixed. She starts with the eyes so that she can connect to the subject and then starts building the composition.

Jacqueline loves bold colours and keeps on going until everything in her idea is in perfect balance. Every piece deserves its own place in the composition and is carefully fit in the right shape and place. All pieces together form a mosaic with elements that makes it a ‘typical’ Jacqueline piece of art.
