  • Bio

    Joanne den Dulk (1953, Curacao - residing in Curaçao)


    Joanne den Dulk was born and raised in Curaçao from a Dutch father and Curaçaoen mother. 

    She remembers how her highschool art teacher picked her out to follow private art lessons for a whole year, because she had an eye for colors. This memory is still of great importance for her, a memory that still has influence in her daily life and career.

    Having attended  the St. Thomas art academy Curaçao for 3 years, which later was closed due to insufficient funding, it was not until 2006 that Joanne den Dulk started her true calling in life. 

    Joanne den Dulk was fascinated by the pointillism technique.


    Joanne den Dulk just loves colors. Color, rather than shape, is more closely related to emotion, when entering her art world. Joanne den Dulk pours her heart and soul into her paintings and trusts her feelings entirely to the colors she uses. Color creates, enhances, changes, reveals and establishes the mood of the painting, and that is why Joanne den Dulk experiences painting in black and white as a punishment.
