Beeldende Kunsten _ Fine Arts Lisanne va




   In addition to the deployment of artistic qualities, an own art prac-

  tice requires also other ways of being creative.

  Being an artist is an enterprise form on its own and where artworks

  often question everyday phenomena, the commercial aspect of  

  entrepreneurship focuses more on meeting the needs of the custo-

  mer. During the studies that all touched the creative strings in me in

  different ways, I mainly fueled my independence, resourcefulness

  and experimental attitude to generate my own visual language.

  But as many say: the 'real thing' starts only after the art academy.

  And then there are also the animals that are indispensable as a

  source of inspiration.

  So look, over there! I have found myself on a bridge between the

  world of animals and the world of art.


  It is therefore my calling, since March 2019, to be the captain of my

  ship named lvb art / Lisanne van Brakel.

  A ship with a solid foundation that will change course continuously

  and will not be stranded yet. Another way of living is unthinkable to

  me. The most fruitful thing in my life is to believe in adventures

  that change my point of view, even when I find things exciting.

  I give the inner child in me room to observe the world and the

  opportunity to bring magic in common things.

  We can be puppets of our own life, but life can also be a puppet

  for us. It's just how you decide to look upon the things that surround
