"There’s a beautiful vibrancy in Bianca's work. The paint handling, sense of sunlight and bold color all give it a wonderful feeling of freshness and vitality." — David Shevlino
My artwork is colorful and characterized by a solid, bold and expressive brushstroke. I am specialized in portraits but I’m first and foremost a painter. I use multiple materials but work mostly with oils and pressed oil (kind of oil pastel) on canvas. I like to combine abstract and figurative elements, look for interesting contemporary compositions and I'm inspired by people and my surroundings. I am fascinated by the play of light and shadow, playing children and scenes from everyday life. Since a few years, I have been working specifically on the series called 'Beach Life'.

“Dutch painter Bianca Berends is a well-known artist whose work encapsulates the freedom and fun of summer. Her children's portraits (often featuring bright colors and bold, expressive brush strokes) are masterfully-painted and available both as originals and limited edition fine art prints." — Review Empty Easel.com
'Bianca deelt zonder terughoudendheid haar jarenlange kennis en ervaring en laat de lezer 150 dagen meekijken in haar atelier. Het boek laat zien welke uitdagingen je als kunstenaar tegenkomt bij het maken van nieuw werk en dat door lef te hebben en door te zetten bijzondere nieuwe creaties ontstaan. Ze beschrijft tot in detail haar denk- en werkproces om het principe van een creatief proces zo goed mogelijk over te brengen. Door de enorme hoeveelheid begeleidend beeldmateriaal, maar ook door de analogie te maken met de werkwijze van een chefkok en hoe deze tot nieuwe recepten komt, slaagt ze hier uitstekend in.'
