All her life as a professional artist Karianne Krabbendam has been sculpting the human soul. This human soul is often shaped by Karianne in the female form. The female form and bodyis the main inspiration for her work, and the leading theme in both her sculptures and paintings.
Her sculpting working process is very distinguished. She works with her hands, with mainly two tools: a hammer and a chisel. During this process Karianne connects with the stone with her hands as it were and slowly leads it to the end result. In painting Karianne uses a very unique technique and color style to suit her expression.
As a follow up after the Koninlijke Academie in The Hague Karianne completed her studies at the Rijks Academie in Amsterdam.
