Nelly van Nieuwenhuijzen is an independent contemporary artist from the Netherlands. Landscapes are her main subjects. She is known for her extensive Zeelandic landscapes with a low horizon line and impressive sky, her undertone of mysticism, and the subtle differences of rhythm and nuances.
The inspiration comes from her surroundings: the skies, the skylines, the dikes and the sea. Zeeland is renowned for its special, beautiful light: it refracts in the water around the isles and the polders. Her work represents a special place in the long tradition of Dutch landscape-artists.
"My landscapes are me... I could always paintthem..When I look outside I see them and when I look inside I see them."
