My name is Linty de Bruijn, I am an artist, and my work consists of portraits and wildlife.

In my work I try to capture a moment of silence.

A little moment of wonder about life, nature or your surroundings. They are for me, moments of happyness and a realisation of your blessings.


My materials are quite divers, oil paints, acrylic paint, graphite, and colour pencil. I love using all of them. But whatever material I use, the colours are light and subtle, and big pieces of the work remain empty.

I also love watercolours and have developed a way to use my acrylics as watercolour.

I love the possibilities that gives me.


Teaching has been another passion of mine since 2003.

I love to see my students improve their skills and make amazing art.

I’m currently working on expanding this a lot, by making more youtube and skillshare videos. More about that on this site.
