tineke veenhoven studied painting and drawing under the tutelage of dutch painter anton buytendijk during her teenage years. this exposure to abstract expressionism at an early age is still visible in her work today. realistic at heart, her paintings represent captured moments in time.

transplantation of this european urbanite to the canadian wilderness has influenced her subject matter and palette in painting and apparel. it also introduced her to other ways of expression: woodcarvings, short stories, safety apparel and musical vlogs with her own flute music.
