Frans Bresser

Medium: Acrylics

“I was born in 1950 in Amsterdam / Holland. I studied at the Pedagogical Academy and after my study I worked as a teacher in primary schools in several towns in Holland.

I am married and we have two sons, a daughter and one granddaughter. After my retirement in 2013 we visited the Algarve in winter. Since 2016 we have our own apartment in Arrifana where we live for a great part of the year.

During my student days, but also as a teacher, I have always painted. I have had lessons from various local artists.

I use acrylic paint for my paintings and sometimes I use other materials such as paper or textile to create for instance more relief. I also use paint with special effects and glitters.

There are many topics that inspire me: landscapes, the sea, but also people who dance, practice a sport or make music. I also use existing art objects such as statues as a starting point for a painting. Depending on the subject, I sometimes work impressionistically or more detailed. I usually work figuratively but every now and then I like to make something abstract.”
