Christien de Jong lives in a small village in the Netherlands. She worked as a teacher in primary school. Being a self-taught artist, she draws, paints and makes spatial work thanks to her great outsider imagination.
Christien de Jong woont in een klein dorp in Nederland. Ze werkte als leerkracht in het basisonderwijs. Ze is autodidact: ze tekent, schildert en maakt ruimtelijk werk vanuit haar grote, bijzondere fantasie.”
“I discovered Christien de Jong’s work through her ink drawings on magazine pages.
From a simple photo of an interior, she manages to create an incredible world of mountains, roads and houses.
She makes dreams come true on paper… Then I bought other volume works like her wonderful cardboard insects. There is a real delicacy in Christien’s work that helps change the world for the better.”
