Ilona Hendriks (St.Oedenrode, 1964) With a 30 year career as professional dancer, choreographer and creative director in the Theatre and Event business Ilona decided in 2001 to explore new ways of expressing herself. To widen her horizon she studied paint at the academy in Belgium and furthermore learned by doing. A moving theatrical background dissolving in powerful, dynamic abstract paintings. She definitely found a new way of choreographing with canvas and paint instead of dancers and stage.
In her series “woman power” Ilona uses a method of painting in which abstraction and figurative images combine and reinforce each other's effect.
Ilona works also in commission.
