Aggie joined the group in 2005. She started out by making stained glass boxes, lamps and windows and did so for 10 years. She moved on to decorating eggs. Aggie is mostly inspired by what goes on in her life, but definitely tends to include some geometric patterns. Over the years she has broadened her artistic repertoire to colored pencil paintings, where she often allows fantasy and unexpected juxtappositions to creep in. Lately she has added quilting to her list of preferred activities, in which she incorporates home-designed embroideries of subjects that have caught her interest.
Willem joined the group in 1995, and works in oil as well as stone and copper sculpture. In his sculptures, Willem likes to combine organic shapes in Nature, with abstract shapes related to his mathematical background. In his paintings he also likes to combine organic and abstract shapes, but also subjects that are somewhat surrealistic, such as desert landscapes, fantasy insects and more.
