My name is Barbara Pijnappel and I live and work in Apeldoorn. In 1987 I started making sculptures and shortly after that I started painting. For some years I followed painting lessons, given by the painter Don Nederhand and lessons in modelling with wax and clay given by the sculptor Joop te Riele in Apeldoorn.
During the same time I started to work part-time at a foundery to get experience with the working in bronze. I did that for about 7 years. In between I have drawn models for a year, together with a group of artists in my town. In the summer of ’96, still followed by a short course in aquarelling in Heelsum (Gld.)

For also getting experience with sculpturing in stone I followed several sculpturing courses with the sculptors Peter Schuijren in Limburg (1994), in the Auvergne in France at Bleu et Vert given by Marianne Neve from Leiden in '95 and with Gerard van Rooij from Den Bosch in '95, '97 and 2011. From 2002 until 2005 I followed sculpturing courses from marblespecialist Caroline Teesing and Guus Jooss in Utrecht, at UCK in Utrecht and at Campo Altissimo in Azzano, (near Carrara) Italy. Followed by several creations in marble. In stone I followed a more abstract and free way of shaping. The shaping is more destined by the stone itself.

In 99 and 00 I worked together with an international sculpturegroup at Gallery and Sculpturegarden Tem Veyne in Eerbeek (Gld.). In december 2001, I have sculptured, on the invitation of the Spanish foundation Fundaçion Valparaiso, a month in their studios of their artistresidency in Mojacar, Andalucië. This foundation gives to artists internationally de opportunity to stay there a month and create new work. Until now I've worked with several sorts of stones like French limestone, alabaster, soap-stone, marble, dolomite, serpentine, siberian leapardstone, springstone, marblegranite: Azul de Macaubas.

In the past years constantly there have been exhibitions in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium in artgalleries, companies, institutions and first class restaurants (Michelin and Alliance).
In the course of time I created in bronze a series of nudes, torsos, dancers, some fairy-tale figures, animals, some magic-realistic sculptures and a series of religious figures (in assignment).

Since the summer of 2005 I have a small sculpturegarden at my studio/gallery/livingroom. It is open on appointment. On this site you can see the sculptures that I made and that are for sale. You also can see the the garden, assignments I did, information about my workshops carving in soapstone & modelling that are given by me since 2006. In 2007 + 2009 I also gave some workshops Creative Thinking. Since the autumn of 2012 started a modelling course in wax + clay.

In my sculptures my aim is to realise harmony, movement, tension, volume, play from space and non-space, the influence of light, and always there is the hollow and spherical. They have to rise up, but also stand strong. They can have a contrast in idea and/or material: for instance the drops that fall as water, but in the meantime, stands and reaches up as a sculpture. Lately I'm fascinated by organic and natural elements and to create them in stone.
