About
I am Nicole Cathrine Hoogendijk, I was born in The Hague (The Netherlands) on November 7th 1976.
I grew op on Curaçao. For my Bachelors Degree, I studied at the Utrecht Academy of Arts in the Netherlands, where I specialized in photography and mixed- media.

After completing my studies I went back to Curaçao. Now I am working as a freelance photographer, artist and teacher. Curaçao is my home Island, full of inspiration and pretty scenery for my pictures and art. I love to take photos outside in a natural environment, which promotes relaxation and spontaneity. I approach each piece of art with a special eye for detail, making my work dynamic and giving it a unique style.

 

Now I’m working as a freelance photographer, which I find gratifying due the fact that it allows me to creative freedom to capture special moments in various settings. At occasions such as weddings, parties and family portraits.I love the variation, one day I shoot weddings and the other I’m taking photo’s of children in therapy at CDTC Sea Aquarium or interiors.

As an artist I specialize in Mixed Media on canvas and photography, I also make personalized art works.

“Enjoy the atmosphere, silence and the velvet sea, Enjoy it not because it goes by, But just because it exists.”
