We are very happy to introduce to you:
Coba Martens & Walter Stoelwinder
Ton Verdegaal has invited this couple to exhibit work in the gallery:
Coba Martens (1956) was born in Drenthe on the Hondsrug. She moved to Friesland when she was twenty where she lived and worked for 25 years. After a 10 year adventure in France, she now lives with her husband, not far from the Dutch/German border in the Teutoburg Forest.
This environment, with many birds and animals, give her the inspiration to paint. Birds are her favorite subjects, especially Europe’s forest, meadow and water birds. The paintings are characterized by an Impressionist style of painting and a realistic portayal of the subject.
Walter Stoelwinder (1948) was born in Friesland, where he grew up and has long been working as a photographer for businesses and individuals. Currently, he is engaged in free photography and painting.
After several years living and working in France, he now lives with his wife not far from the Dutch/German border. From here he goes regularly to the Netherlands to paint or to take photographs. His favorite subjects are landscapes and cityscapes. Walter’s paintings are realistic with an impressionistic style of painting.
