CARY LOOPUYT JURRIAANS - Painter
Cary Loopuyt Jurriaans was born and raised in the Netherlands and grew up among some of the most beautiful art in the world. Trained at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy and later the Seattle Academy of Art (now Gage Academy), she now operates the Whidbey Island Fine Art Studio, bringing world-class artists to Whidbey to teach classic and contemporary drawing and painting techniques.
The Dutch paintings she drew up with still have an influence on her paintings, even though she has evolved her own style. Says Jurriaans, “My life is not complete without creating something of beauty. I strive for a sense of intimacy in my paintings. I grew up in the Netherlands with exposure to some of the most beautiful art in the world. This inspired me to paint. To me it is a celebration of pleasures, people, food and wine, beautiful shapes, dark and light and peace and quiet. I like to paint the beauty of creation—beauty in the ordinary things of everyday life.“
Cary is a signature member of Puget Sound Group Northwest Painters. Established in 1928, PSGNWA is one of the first associations of traditional fine art painters and sculptors in the United States. Her work has been exhibited in many juried shows and can be found in many private collections in the United States and across Europe.
