Margot Suzanne Abbring was born in the Netherlands in 1962. She lived in several countries in Europe over the years and has now settled down in Spain. During her school period she developed a great interest in drawing, painting, colours and forms and has ever done so since. Her paintings are colourful, original and full of emotion.
“I made the switch from impressionistic painting to abstract some years ago as I felt unsatisfied with the results lots of times. Abstract painting has more to offer when we talk about expressing ourselves! My inspiration comes from stimulation around me, colours, pictures, magazines, movies, fashion, shapes and even smells. I never sketch. I start working directly with the canvas which I prefer to be big and three-dimensional. I work mainly with acrylics and spatula but I like to experiment and try new things as well. Mixing different styles and techniques. My series on Architecture consist of black ink and acrylics…and are a combination of figurative and abstract. My last few paintings are a mixture of transfers of photographs and acrylic painting and varnish. Past and present…..I love to mix the “stillness” of the B&W photo’s with the vivid colours of paint….I paint intuitively and let it flow.”

”…The impressionist inspired abstract acrylic pieces by Margot Abbring were also outstanding and would definitely have to recommend that any serious buyers should most certainly put her on their radars, presenting some very colourful, emotive originals at the art fair and certainly drawing a crowd…”
