BIO

Renske Herder is a multidisciplinary artist and designer, born in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands (1986). She works in the fields of textile design, graphic art and painting. She received her master's degree in Industrial Design Engineering and honered her skills working in the field of surface design and product styling. She also worked as a pottery painter in the traditional majolica technique (Delfts Blauw).

A few years ago (2021) Renske, her husband and young children moved to Bonaire to live here for 3 years.
Renske’s graphic roots are clearly visible as almost every canvas explores the combination of realistic figures with abstract textile and quilting patterns.
