My name is Ilona Heimann. I was born in 1944 and living in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. I am married with the artist Frans Strik and we both have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
12 years ago I became acquaintant with painting on porcelain and immediately I was enchained. 2 years I took courses and afterwards I went on independent. At first Peter Faust was my great inspirator and through his books, I arrived at beautifull paintings. My husband stimulated me much to improve my porcelain painting.
To day I am very inspired by “Dutch Pottery”( Gouda Pottery) from the twenties, Art Deco or Art Nouveau.Enjoy watching on my website,
I have regular succesful exhibitions together with the works of my husband.
I hope to continue many years with porcelain painting and my inspirations in the stories and examples from porcelain painters in various magazins.
