Residing both in the Netherlands and France, Joke Frima who was born in the Hague
in 1952. She attended two art schools in The Netherlands, Frima had to go to Florence
to find the kind of training she was looking for. There she was under the tutelage
of the elderly signora Simi who taught drawing and painting just as her own father
had helped her by studying plaster feet, terracotta jugs, and live models. Frima
trained six hours a day, six days a week. The result of this training is a keen eye for
detail and a steady hand for form. Yet her paintings and drawings are not simply
reflections of her retinal images. Although nature and vegetation play a strong role
in her work, she chooses her subjects carefully and meticulously sets them in
sometimes almost surreal compositions. The intense light and powerful concentration
lends an other-worldly quality to her work
