Blombizeux, Ardennes area

Welcome at ART artstudio JORINDE JONKER.

Blombizeux is a tiny village close to Blombay, both in the French Ardennes area. The family Koenderink has built their dreamhouse and this place is the central point of our artistic journey. The area is beautiful, green and hilly.

The peaceful and quiet environment gives you the opportunity to take time for observing and focus on making art. It invites you to have some rest and gives space to concentrate on your drawings and paintings. While exploring the landscape you will use all kinds of materials and technics, such as: charcoal, acrylics, aquarel paint and soft pastels. Meanwhile you will enhance your creativity.
