Fieke de Roij

Fieke de Roij

Born: 1962

Hometown: Utrecht

Based in: Utrecht

Fieke de Roij, stone sculptor, based in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

My sculptures are clear and abstract. They are created intuitively, by combining shapes and materials. While working I searche for simplicity, tension and balance. The sculptures evoke an atmosphere or association and give room for individual interpretation.
I uses a form language that is universally recognizable and appreciated worldwide. You can find my work in private collections across many countries.

Background:
After years of working with all kind of materials, in 1994 I discovered stone sculpting. From that moment my choice was made. With the start of my company ‘Werk in Steen’ in 2005, I wanted to further professionalize my working as a sculpture and create a place to convey my love for the profession.
Since 2007 I organize classes stone sculpting in my studio in Utrecht city. And also summer courses on locations in The Netherlands, Germany and France.
In 2019 I celebrate my 25 years of stone sculpting and the many years of teaching.

Education:
College of Education Utrecht, teacher training Textile and Crafts (1982-1988)
Academy for Visual Arts The Hague (1995-2000)
