About her work

Manou schakelt schijnbaar moeiteloos tussen allerlei verschillende stijlen. Van impressionistisch geschilderde landschappen ging haar werk al snel in de richting van het abstract-expressionisme waaronder gestural abstration (action-painting). Ter afwisseling schildert zij ook figuratief waarin zij menselijke emoties en relaties ook wel op een cartoonachtige manier uitbeeldt. In haar huidige werk vloeien zelfreflectie, inventiviteit en uitdrukkingskracht dan ook op harmonische wijze samen.
 
Op pagina: "Gallery" is haar werk verdeeld over 10 albums te zien.
 
Manou was born in Amsterdam and lived part of her youth in the USA. She is a professional artist and has had exhibitions in New York, Miami, San Diego and the Netherlands. Many of her paintings are in private and corporate collections internationally. Her work varies from abstract to realistic, both in acrylic or oil paint and covers a wide range of subject matter. In her present work self-reflection, inventiveness and expression flow together in a harmonious way.
 
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.
