Wiea Duintjer  

born 1951 in Wildervank

Education: Academie Minerva Architectural design

Education: Bronze casting with Sebastiaan Vos

For Wiea Duintjer, sculpture was, despite her study at Kunstacademie Minerva, a belated vocation. Her education bronze-casting was from 1993-1997. In 2003 she was asked to be a visiting lecturer at her former Academie Minerva.

Not only is she interested in  the artistic angle, but also in the metier of sculpture. Playful figurative bronze figures show her joie de vivre, sense of humour, her need for harmony, symbolism and genuine love for her fellow man.
