Joke Proper (PROPER ART) lives and works in Olst-Wijhe, a small village between the Dutch Hanseatic cities of Deventer and Zwolle, which is beautifully situated on the banks of the river IJssel. Her works capture her fascination and wonder for the world that surrounds her.

"To me, a painting is a true success if I have managed to transmit emotions and feelings to others. It may even serve to facilitate a meaningful dialogue. My work is all about atmosphere, and dreams around beauty and vulnerability in man and nature. Two extremes of my personality are often visible in my works: both a sensitive introverted side and a spontaneous humorous side".

Joke creates unique art such as semi-abstract landscapes and portraits; using loose yet confident brush strokes in her signature style. Please find more examples of her art work and all contact information on
