"Being a versatile artist, I find the use of one technique or discipline too one-sided, which is why I like to combine various art disciplines."

 

My Story

I am Ingeborg Steenhorst, a visual artist, photographer and fashion designer. Things I love are visiting musea and castles, books, music, films, horse riding, animals and hiking in nature. Beside my passion in photography and visual art, I work parttime as nurse in the field of home care.

The historical city  's-Hertogenbosch in the south of the Netherlands, is where I reside together with my very musical and also creative husband Rob and our cats 'Mini' and 'Maxi'. Close to home I have a nice atelier/studio space where I can fully express my creativity. From a young age I was busy drawing, painting and making 'things' from textiles, beads and all kinds of natural and unnatural materials. Besides ethnic and historical art and culture, I get a lot of inspiration from nature. Like nature itself, my work is versatile and contains a rich array of colours, atmospheres and distinctive details. After completing educations graphic and fashion design, as a freelancer I started to realize various assignments as a freelancer from designing logos, artworks and backdrops for bands, designing and manufacturing corsages, (wedding)outfits, hats and accessories up to the complete styling of artists and designing theatrical costumes for stage productions.

Since 2020 I have also started to actively further develop myself as a photographer. I regularly go into nature to photograph all the beautiful things I see there. I publish my photos as stand-alone images and as series and I also process 'parts' of my photo's into digital photo artwork. Next to nature and landscape themes, I create surreal portraits in which my costume designs play a role. In addition to the photography, I am experimenting with body painting and I create hand-painted and embellished wall hangings that act as atmospheric backgrounds for the portraits. In themselves, however, these wall hangings are also unique textile artworks.

 

Creating sustainable

Involved with nature and the environment, I mainly create sustainable through the reuse of textiles and materials and a combination of up- and recycling techniques with traditional needlework. I prefer to work with vintage textiles, vintage clothing and jewelry parts, natural and recycled materials and found or donated 'treasures'. In this way I make artistic outfits, theater costumes, headdresses, masks, accessories, textile jewelery, footwear, decorative objects and wall hangings. Manufacturing can take days, weeks and sometimes even months and results in creations full of details, layers and 'hidden' stories.
