ABOUT

SANNY BIJVOET (1972) 

Sanny began creating mixed media in 2008.

Creating is her nature - it flows, it is energy and happiness. Her hands follow the materials. She loves working with reused paper of all sorts including photos, pages from old books and magazines set in with upcycled vintage frames with that beautiful contoured glass.  Natural rough products like gemstones, metal, tribal beads and old leather are also favourites of Sanny; It feels like being in contact with the soul of life, the source where every living creature comes from. 

Since she was a kid Sanny has loved drawing, building littles houses from wooden blocks and making jewellery. She used to search for treasures around her  and  had her own beads and tools at a very young age. Her mother was the loving power to develop and explore and her father the motor of discipline to continue when she was very young.

She constantly pictures everything around her which could be reused or adapted into something more attractive/ happiness. The reused images deeply touch her source. 

Working on frame art started in 2008. Her mixed media art consists of realistic subdued animals and people in surrealistic area. All show vulnerability by the look in their eyes or their pose.

Sanny combines her art with teaching and practising Hatha and Kashmir Yoga, the two complement eachother perfectly.
