LEONIEKE KORMELINK

about

Leonieke

Leonieke is a Dutch-born artist who has been living and working in the UK for the past 30 years. She studied fashion in the 1980s at Artez University of the Arts in Arnhem. After graduating, she worked for a short period in Paris for an international trend forecasting company, creating mood-boards and styling books.

Upon moving to the UK, she joined a graphic design group, working on a wide range of projects mostly within the fashion sector. This background served as the catalyst for her transition from professional work to fine art.

Drawing from a broad spectrum of experiences, she has developed a practice that incorporates a meticulous eye for detail and a deep understanding of surfaces and colour. Her work explores the subtle interplay of these elements, often incorporating hand-stitched satin threads contrasting with sourced materials, resulting in intricate and richly textural works that reflect a unique combination of processes and materials.
