lived in Ireland for ten years where she had a stained
glass studio. She was mainly responsible for the design
and the painting of the windows. By playing around
with glass she has developed further. She uses mainly
antique hand blown glass because it sparkles and lives
and gives different effects with the painting.
"I have been drawing since I can walk and its
sometimes a blessing and sometimes a curse. Sometimes
I can't find words to express what I want to say but
the images come naturally to me. Glass gives me the
peace to express the image I want and give it a place
in the light. I will continue producing free works
as that way I can express myself fully".
In the past Tineke has worked for numerous private
people and glass studio's.
