Born in 1963, Genk, BE

The portraits of Ingrid balance between figuration and abstraction. The technique that helps her with this is on the sketched and subsequently painted portrait, processing various types of paper. Working this way means letting go for her; unexpected things happen. It is like working with clay. Ingrid's work is therefore described as a work of art between a painting and a sculpture.

The balance between the faded portrait and the colorful three-dimensional, often glossy, finish unmistakably creates the same effect that a beautiful woman in reality also evokes; attraction! The viewer's gaze is held by the portrait. Literally an eyecatcher. Ingrid often chooses the woman as the subject. The woman stands for beautiful, attractive and seductive. Ingrid examines femininity and displays it; the shape of the face, the eyes, the position, the look. What exactly determines the femininity of the woman? Ingrid discovered, according to her own words, only late, after her twentieth, her own femininity.
