I’m not trying to imitate nature, but to use nature as a starting off point. Color, line, and form are more important than the details of the actual subject matter. I want to give a sense or feel for the subject rather than an exact replication.

Getting to Know Hilma

Hilma Koelman has traveled the world, but always found herself coming back to the ocean. Living in Curacao, a tropical island in the Caribbean, provides endless inspiration for her art, from the deep turquoise of the water to the colorful buildings of the island. She uses her abstract paintings to express her passion and energy. Hilma may go through states of happiness, struggling, or insecurity when she’s creating a work of art, but she always arrives at a feeling of satisfaction, at which point she knows the painting is finished.
