About the Author
Magadel represents the fifth generation of an artistic family of whom the landscape painter, Cornelis Kuijpers, is internationally known (P. Scheen Lexicon: Nederlandse Beeldende Kunstenaars 1750 – 1950).
“Growing up in an artistic environment guaranteed that she pursued a career in drawing and painting professionally. As long as she can remember she has been drawing and writing stories. Initially, she thought this might lead to a career in book illustration but the confines of this trade proved unproductive. Instead she embarked on a career as a painter, without knowing in which direction it would take her. She knew she would not follow in the footsteps of her grandfather, Cornelis Kuijpers, a respected landscape painter, nor follow her father, a surrealist artist ‘avant la lettre’. But his work became her starting point: Let inspiration take you where it may, away from imitating the visible world.”
