    ... and handmade Jewelry to make all other Art forms accessible to everyone, everywhere! 
             But first, let me welcome you to my home and introduce myself properly...


Being an anthropologist by education (symbolism in storytelling the main topic of my studies), 
and adoring the Jugenstil and Pre- Raphaelites in style and image choice, 

my work defines itself by strong images, centered around one person or animal.

I mostly prefer to work with traditional paint and drawing methods.
I can and do use computerprogramms when it fits the project I am working on.
Inspirations come, amongst other things, from anime, manga, gaming, books and movies.

Name: drs. Minke van Raalte-Priester

Up until 2012 different training educations.

1993 – 1998 University Utrecht, Cultural Anthropology (focus on folklore, folktales, New Age, symbolism)
1992-1993  Social Work
Unceasing autodidact artist since 1990.

As I made the choice early to go for a family first, instead of a career, I decided to not strain myself and my family and take it slow for the first ten years of my children's busy upgrowing. I held to that promise. It made me an even better artist, though without much of the fame and mostly small (literally small!) work because of practical issues.
Now, I can manage all the tasks at hand more than fine, as my kids have made a lot of growing progress!
