Christiane Vleugels is a traditional Artist from Belgium. Her giant photo-like paintings seem to tell a story and invite you in for the experience.

Christiane’s interest in art began at a very young age and by the age of twelve, her parents enrolled her into the Academy of Fine Arts.

She learned the art of drawing and sculpting and continued her art education throughout young-adulthood at SISA and the Royal Academy of Antwerp.

Her work eventually began to show in galleries in Egypt, Liverpool and the Galerie Des Beaux Art in Germany. As many artists have designers have experienced, the success came with much pressure and stress.

“For years I was forced to take on numberless commissions, many of them reproductions. When I look back at those tiresome years, during which I often felt myself under incredible pressure and even, at times, uninspired, I realize they were a necessary part of my artistic journey. After all, it is by taking on all those commissions that I learned to perfect my technique. I really do think I owe my various skills to that endless list of reproductions, strange as it may sound,” says Christiane.

After taking a short break, she could no longer repress the urge to create and find herself in her art again. “Each new painting unveils a certain aspect and makes it clear to me that I have chosen the right path in life. The sole purpose of my work is to tempt people to dream.”
