My name is Ank de Groot-van der Meer. Born in 1964. I live in between Amsterdam and The Hague, nextdoor to the Keukenhof. Already from childhood I draw and I come from a very creative family.

From 1992 I followed lessons in oil painting, from a teacher who followed classes at the Hague School. I followed Chakra, Celtic and Mandala art classes.

I am inspired by life itself, nature, my feelings and inner images.

It is fantastic to create something, it does not matter with which material. I'm mostly work on different artworks at the same time: oilpaint and acrylic paint.
