LEONIEKE KORMELINK

About

Leonieke, a Dutch born artist, has been living and working in the UK for the past 30 years. Leonieke studied fashion in the 1980’s at art college in Arnhem. After graduating, she worked for a short period in Paris for an international trend forecasting company, creating mood-boards and styling books for the fashion and textile industry. Moving to the UK, Leonieke joined a graphic design company, working across a broad spectrum of projects relating to the fashion industry. This background was the catalyst that launched her on an artistic journey from commercial work, to pursue a career in fine art.

It may take days, even weeks until I find the shape I am looking for, the shape that leads me then to make decisions about thread, line, placement, light, reflection. It’s a constant, shifting process in which material, textures, shapes and colour incrementally connect.
