Jessica van Brakel

My grandfather was a housepainter, my father a very talented painter, drawer and designer.
We spend our childhood playing, drawing and dancing in ateliers, workshops, theatres and musea. Well-raised with a self-evident quantity of creative thinking and interest in all forms of art.

By arranging my fathers work, organizing his exhibitions and making his website Arnold van Brakel
I seized the opportunity to get acquainted to the business side of the world of arts.

But joining the Art Club Portugal is the real eye-opener. Learning the skills and studying to develop my own dozing possibilities.
