I proudly want to introduce you to my StoneArt: “making art with stone”.
My StoneArt can be described as figurative: a recognizable object but without an abundance of details; less is more. Where I find it important not to polish away all traces that the stone has accumulated in all those years, the rough edge may also be there. For a plinth I like to use wood with a past. With my StoneArt I strive for sustainable use of materials.
In addition to making, exhibiting and selling my own work, I offer students through private courses like the opportunity to occupy their minds and to (re)discover their creativity. As a grief counselor I also offer a course to make a memory. cursus SteenGevoel
Through exhibitions and this website I want to bring my StoneArt to the attention of a wider audience, and of course hope that my work also touches you.

Who is the maker of VERSLOOT steenkunst?
Jolanda van den Hengel-Versloot (1964). Artist & grief counselor.
From an early age my life has consisted of being creative. A few years ago I started to focus on the processing of stone into visual art or as I like to call it: SteenKunst (Stone Art).
In addition to my StoneArt, I also sell handmade WoolArt. In addition to a decorative function, it is also functional. I make this WoolArt especially to exhibit my sculptures. Of course I try to achieve a nice cohesion between StoneArt and WoolArt. It is a protection for my statues or pedestals and | or for the surface. The WoolArt is also for sale. Prices range from € 25.
My Stone Art is made possible by using materials from nature. To deal with this very consciously, I donate. With every sale I give back a piece of nature to our 🌍
