Hello, my name is Frans Klerkx. I live in Oosterbeek, near Arnhem in the east of the Netherlands. I am married with Mignon van Heerden who is a painter too.
We have two sons.
When we met, I was experimenting with all kinds of creative activities.
One day, Mignon put a small glass vase in front of me on the table and asked me
to make a painting of it. The result was satisfying and I made some more.
Months later I decided to devote my energy solely to the still life genre for a period of ten years. That proved to be, nearly 30 years and more than 350
paintings later, a good decision.
2011 was an important moment for I decided to abandon the still life genre
to make a new start in a new direction. Landscape, the human figure; I don't
know what and where it will bring me to.
On this website I will try to let you know.
