The Dutch artist Agnes den Hartogh (1968, born in Uithuizermeeden, the most northern part of the Netherlands) takes the visitors to a journey worldwide to share her impressions. All over the world she did several projects (Rabobank Foundation, Rotary, Cadena Foundation, but also for companies) and she travelled to different places in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Every place gives her inspiration. Her favourite themes are architecture and the way how people live. The quick drawings in her sketchbooks are the start of big paintings, collages and monotypes. Especially the last years she felt in love with the Umbrian area and made a lot of artwork inspired by historical places in Italy

In july 2011 she started in Casamaggiore-Castiglione del Lago (Umbria, Italy) her studio Tipografia Sperimentale.

After her study on the Academy of Arts in Kampen the Netherlands – where she graduated in Graphic Design, specialized Illustration Design - she worked for 11 years as a professor on the Art Highschool Graphic Design in Amsterdam and one year at the Multimedia Academy in Leeuwarden. She combined her teaching with working in her own graphic design enterprise, where she did many different design projects for o.a. KLM, Tommy Hilfiger, Ministry of Finance, Rabobank Foundation. In the meantime she worked also as an autonome artist and she developed her techniques (collage and experimental printing) and tried to find a balance between these complicated techniques and her very quick way of drawing and illustrating impressions.

She did many exhibitions and projects all over the world (Honduras, Kenia, Albania, Poland, Cambodia, Mexico) and now she combines her work as coordinator of cultural education events in Holland with her works and workshops in her studio in Casamaggiore. In these studio Tipografia Sperimentale she spread her techniques, inspired by all the ingredients the Umbrian and Tuscan cities and landscapes give her.

As a member of Rotary International she was involved in national and international projects. Agnes also works for Dutch magazines by publishing articles.
