About the artist
Saskia Huitema (1975) is a self taught Dutch acrylic painter who lives in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Her passion for painting started at a later stage in life and her art has evolved ever since. Saskia’s work is recognizable by the use of color, crisp details, and narrative content.
Saskia has exhibited her paintings at galleries, museums and other venues since 2015. In 2020 she started creating work for @78 Tarot and joined the international Star Dust Art Collective. Her paintings have been adopted by collectors both nationally and internationally.
Artwork Themes & Subject Matter
Saskia Huitema’s main focus is on portraits and figures of women, but nature, animals and birds also find their way in her paintings.
Saskia is working on a surrealistic series of paintings titled ‘Realms’ in which she explores perspectives, landscapes and different story settings for her subjects. Common thread in these works is a blue feather which at times seems to lead toward another realm, beckoning the subject or viewer to step through an aperture, on a quest to ultimately find the goal one yearns for. Symbolism is also a theme in Saskia’s fantasy Tarot / Oracle paintings.
Saskia Huitema’s paintings have been published in magazines and online sources, including PIKCHUR Magazine, Candyfloss Magazine and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine.
