born in Beveren Waas on May 4th 1943
Beatrijs Verhofstede is creative in poetry, painting and fashion design.
She likes to work with wax, to express her emotion, guided by intuition and understanding.
For the spectator her work provokes feelings of a higher level.
Sometimes the painting illuminates the poem.
Sometimes it is the other way around.
She often works at night: a poem to express her deep emotion, a painting that brings solace and joy.
For her tunics for young people she prefers noble materials such as silk which she decorates with graffiti.
She also renovates old flats where she likes to combine noble materials with old furniture.
