Doortje Hefting is a 24 year old self-taught artist living in the Netherlands. Creating has always been a big part of her life. For as long as she can remember, she has been drawing, writing and creating stories. When paint came into her life at the age of 21, her artwork took off. She fell in love even more. What's inside her mind, comes to life through brushstrokes and vibrant colors. Doortjes art journey began at a very young age and was tremendously influenced by the Japanese world of manga and anime. During her teenage years the big manga-eyes became a little bit smaller and she started incorporating more realistic aspects in her artwork. After trying various subjects and styles, she found her true passion in painting worlds full of wilderness, wild animals and most of all, love between nature and humanity.
