Sofie Van Daele - painter


Sofie Van Daele(°1973) lives  in Lovendegem since 2000. She is happily married to Wim and is the proud mother of Justine and Louis.

As a child she loved drawing and painting. She had a dream: having her own atelier...

 Due to her job and the education of the children, there was little time left to paint.

 In 2007 she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia after an infection of borrelia (Lyme) and had to quit her job. Fortunately she found therapy in painting. Without any art education she loves painting  with oil on canvas or wood. She loves working with warm delicate and natural colors.

 Her passion is painting animals. In Sweden and Finnish Lapland, she fell in love with the (rein) deer of which she  captures the strength and the mystique in her work.

During the last months, her husband has been transforming a shipping container into a real atelier! So you see, dreams do come true...
