Explore my studio & see how i work

I love my studio! Two years ago we renovated the ground floor of our house and it is my dream studio. We live on Curaçao which is an island in the Caribbean. We are here most of the year, the remaining time (4 or 5 months) we travel with our camper in The States or spend time in Amsterdam in The Netherlands and work from there. 

I often start working around 9 am until midday when I make lunch for me and my husband who is a software engineer and also has his office at home. After lunch, I work until around 7 pm. People often ask me if I only work when I am in a flow or inspired, but I tell them I always work even when I don't know how to proceed or if I'm not in the mood. Most of the time it comes to me when I'm in the studio and surrounded by my paints and materials. It is always a surprise at the beginning of the day what I have created at the end of the day. Sometimes I continuously work on one painting (often a larger one), but I also like to switch between paintings or do something completely different for a day like sketching or experimenting with materials and techniques. 

Against the back wall, I hang canvasses using M3 tape (really strong) and work on multiple paintings at the same time.

Studio Bianca Berends

When I work on smaller paintings I sit at my workbench and roll the trolley (very handy to have a table on wheels) next to me.

As an artist, you have to be willing to get your hand dirty! Although I must say, a lot of the time I use rubber hospital gloves when the going get tough :-) Much healthier!

Tropical studio

My studio occupies the whole ground floor. When I'm done working at the end of the day I take a dip in the pool, walk up the spiral stairs and I'm home!

Along the walls, there is some finished work and on the ground prints, I am still working on.

Me and Nuka in my studio

I am sometimes joined by the dog of friends of ours! Since our own dog died, she comes and visits us, which I love!

Working in my studio Bianca Berends

I surround myself with all kinds of scraps of paper and collage elements, so they can inspire me when I'm working.
