African Lady with Parrots and Poetry by Karen Nijst

Karen Nijst Profile picture Among the foliage where parrots live,
Their feathers vibrant like rainbows,
She stands, a beauty with African heart,
Silently she speaks, almost impassively.

Her being longs for stories, full of beauty,
Legacy of the mother from which she was born,
She is the soul of the land, and still time,
An image full of splendour, undisturbed.

This is how she brings the African jungle to life,
An image that will not soon fade,
Embrace its warmth, revive your room,
Africa's richness will always please.

Drawing, mixed media technique. Created in 2024.

This artwork is offered by Karen Nijst

Karen Nijst has lived in and near her beloved hometown of Maastricht for many years. She currently works as a web developer (Kahlo Websites in Hapert, Brabant) and is responsible for both programming and graphic design . The latter has undoubtedly influenced some of the drawings you can see here.
Karen likes to draw and write as often as possible and sees herself primarily as an illustrator. She can also become fascinated by a photograph. Like the drawing of the market in Maastricht. What are those people thinking? Where are they going? What would their lives be like? Something like that remains fascinating while drawing each little figure -no matter how small- .
Carnival
Of course also the vastelaovend in Mestreech is subject of many a drawing. A grateful subject even, because only in Maastricht you can find the shoenste scenes. Beautifully dressed up people, wonderful colors ... imaginative and above all: 'chic'.
Technique
In recent years, Karen has enjoyed working on paper and, increasingly, on her IPAD Pro.
Karen: "I enjoy the challenge of looking for the best color palette, the right composition and cut-outs. I also often combine different scenes. In addition, it is not my primary goal to portray people in a recognizable manner, unless of course it is a portrait. I just want to capture a certain atmosphere as well as possible!"
