Recently, Katrien rediscovered an old love for painting. She is currently enrolled in a part-time study in painting at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts DKO (Antwerp). Katrien is an amateur of photography and in her artwork, she often starts from an image coming from her personal photo archive. The images are a portrayal of facts from the past. By processing a photo image into a painting, the past fades into imagination.
