WHO IS KRISTEL NIJSKENS

I was born in 1975 in Ostend.

After living on the coast for a number of years and then growing up in Antwerp, I now live in a loft in Boom with Jan, the man of my life. That immediately explains the original name of my shop and studio. My plus son Robbe and our foster daughter L. spoil our 2 dogs Lens and Claire(-Obscure) and our cat Pixel.  We couldn't beat it!

 

Furthermore, there are  2 things in this world that I love very much:

 

People

 

And beautiful things.  

 

I am therefore a very happy woman because I can combine these two beautiful things every day. 

The connection with the customer is important to me. I make them in two ways.  

Art photography, art is that little bit more. Make your house a home. Making a business environment even more professional.

 

Portrait photography. Taking the pictures, sharing the pictures and saving the pictures is important. But even more important is protecting your best memories.

 

In addition to being a photographer, I am also an illustrator. I love to let my imagination run wild in order to develop your story in a graphically and visually strong way.  

 

Do you want to know more about myself, my photography or my illustrations? Feel free to enter the store during opening hours. Coffee and tea are always available.  

 

See you soon.
