About Eljada

Eljada graduated from the ArtEZ art academy in Arnhem, The Netherlands, in 1976. She majored in free painting and graphic techniques and did many minors including photography, anatomy, drawing techniques, portraits, cartoon drawing, digital art and art history. Eljada has been working as an independent art professional ever since. Here work consists of free painting, portrait art, drawing and illustrations, ceramics and sculpturing.

“People interested in art are often fascinated by artists’ statements about their work. The only way to really learn about an artist’s work, which is all trial and error, is to just look at what the artist does instead.”

– Eljada van Muijden





My passion for art

For as long as I can remember I have drawn. It is like a second nature. In school, drawing during classes was of course never allowed, but I would draw on my legs or petticoat with a piece of chalk or even chocolate when I got the chance. When nothing was at hand, I used to draw pictures in my mind. As a child I had a strong urge to create, my parents gave me the space to develop myself. I started painting, discovered the possibilities of clay, plaster, textiles, wood, I worked with different materials.

Today that child is still in me, I love what I do, it’s like breathing, I can not do without.
