Visual artist Trudie Teijink was born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She earned her BFA at the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten. Spent a semester at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Ghent (Belgium) and continued her education as an independent student at the College of Fine Arts in Utrecht. After living and working in Greece and Germany for several years, she moved to Lincoln, Nebraska in 2001. Trudie received her MFA at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2010. In her work, she investigates the fragility of human life while touching upon feelings of fortitude, loss, and desire. She uses digital imagery on paper and fabrics, drawing, and a wide variety of traditional printmaking techniques. She explores the possibilities of three-dimensionality derived from 2D imagery.
