Annemarie Busschers is a contemporary artist from the Netherlands who creates portraits that beautifully captures the raw emotion of her subjects, often in a photo-realistic style.
Annemarie’s work is based on photographs that capture the imperfections of the skin surface. She takes photos of her models and studies the irregularities, lines, grooves and veins of the skin. These are emphasized in the painting process with the skin treated as a landscape with all its irregularities. The paintings are built by using different layers of materials such as acrylic paint, pencil, pastel, epoxy, wood, wax, paper, and felt.
