About Me

Thank you for visiting my website!

I’m Edith van Duin-Schermer and I was born in 1977. I live in Spanbroek, a small rural village in Noord-Holland, approximately 50 kilometres north of Amsterdam.

My interest for drawing and painting started at quite a young age. On my 7th birthday, I received oil paint from my parents. From then onwards, I have been addicted to the smell of fresh oil paint and white spirit!

Having started as an autodidact, in 2009 I decided to follow courses in classical oil painting at the art academy in Haarlem (Kunstacademie Haarlem). I had the opportunity to work under the supervision of André Gouw. I have learned a great deal from him, and he has been a major influence on my work.

I don’t really work with fixed subjects. What usually happens is that I’m moved or touched by something I see. Part of what I see is kept in the painting, and the rest is adjusted.

In case of any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
