Porcelain Artist Jeanne Opgenhaffen

Jeanne Opgenhaffen was born in Nieuwkerken - Waas, Belgium, in 1938. She studied at Koninklijke Academie and National Hoger Institute, Antwerpen.

Living and working in Belgium, Jeanne has been exhibiting her internationally recognised work with natural and coloured porcelain since 1980. With awards and exhibitions in Australia, Germany, Egypt, England, Isreal, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Belgium, Slovaikia, Taiwan, and USA.

Jeanne's influences come from wind patterns, the earth's landscape and other organic elements. Her large murals are constructed from thousands of tiles which are overlapped in varying shades and tomes creating artworks that give the impression of both depth and movement.
