Just imagine our world without pieces of art. Without opera, music, theatre, books, paintings. Without culture… It would be so bland, colorless, and, quite frankly, boring.
I’m thrilled you’re taking the time to visit this corner of the web. I’m Simone Endert. I’m a passionate and esthetics-loving artist living in Amsterdam. In my day-to-day life I’m also sr. policy advisor/lobbyist for the association of Dutch universities.
As long I remember, I’m busy drawing, painting and creating.
The house I grew up in was like a museum, showcasing all the drawings my little sister and I made. Then, as I got older, ‘busy life’ happened. I studied history in Nijmegen, joined a bunch of student boards and thereafter (in 2014) started as a project lead for innovative programs.
Long story short… For quite some years the artful vibes weren’t getting enough space. In 2017 I decided to change this. A decision with a good number of paintings as a result 😊
This site is my online, creative outlet. It allows me to share all of the artful good stuff with you!🎉
I believe art makes the world a better place. Art:
compels you to think, feel and fall in love with your surroundings
brings joy! Making you happy on the spot
fires up your imagination
sparks meaningful conversations
And, is a great companion for you and your home’s bare walls ❤
I think inspiration can be anywhere. If I look at architecture, interior design, interesting mixes of textures, patterns and colors. If I walk through nature, enjoy a cultural show, drink a relaxing cup of coffee (latte art included ;-)). Or when I simple manage to sit still for a minute and do nothing…
Inspiration really is all around. And, I’m – often subconsciously – taking it all in.
You can’t make me happier than when someone loves to hang one of my pieces in his/her home.
In all of my work aesthetics play an important role. My check is always “would I hang this at my own wall…?” 😉 I love working both figurative and abstract. Constantly experimenting with new techniques and ways to approach a subject.
Let's talk about you!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little corner of the web. I consider it a huge privilege to create art and share it with you. And, thanks for reading this far 😉
