studio oils

Charlie Eleanor DeRuiter

Oil painting is my passion. The process of creating art with oil paints is a visceral experience. Since my first stroke of my brush on a canvas years ago, I have been captivated by the unique sensation and satisfaction it brings. The texture and richness that oil paints provide is indescribable. With every painting, I continue to learn and shift, constantly striving to push the boundaries of my artistic expression. The journey of self-discovery and growth through my art is a endless pursuit that fuels my creativity and brings me immense joy and is continually opening up new realms to explore.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
