About Heleen Heintjes

This site gives an impression of my working life as a costume designer for film,theater, commercials etc.

There is a section about my working life as a artist. Narrative is important in my work. I draw inspiration and imagery from old paintings, folklore, religion ,mythology,vintage ads and daily life.Adoption of ideas from these different sources make the foundations of an alienating world. Sometimes dreamy, sometimes agressive or even scary.

I embrace many styles, from almost abstract like nudes on paper, to detailed oil paintings.
