Christiane Vleugels is drawing since her early childhood, and doesn’t limit herself to some specific genres or techniques. Now, she prefers to paint hyper-realistic oil paintings.
The first Christiane Vleugels’ art education was received at the Academy of Arts in her hometown. Five years later, the young artist decided to move to a more advanced city, Antwerp, where she got a not very paying job as a decorator and artist in an advertising agency. Here, in Antwerp, Christiane improves her ability to paint with oil, studying it at the Royal Academy of Arts. The artist herself says that even those years that she spent doing low-paid copies of famous artists’ paintings, were spent not in vain. They gave her a valuable experience and allowed her to develop her own style.
