I’m primarily an abstract expressionist painter. I enjoy the freedom to express my feelings and emotions and working intuitively. Listening to music and making meditative strolls along the shore are ways to get in contact with my subconscious before I can let flow the energy.

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.
