Annelies van Gils was born in Oosterhout in the Netherlands.
Her work knows several themes. She gets her inspiration from her
environment, from things that happen around her.
People and nature are also favourite themes.
Most of her works are painted with acryl, sometimes in combination with other materials.
Colours are a way to create a certain atmosphere in her paintings. Annelies sees painting as a way to express her feelings into images. Allways searching for the right shape, composition or colour as kind of feedback to the original idea.
