Jalinka Gressmann is a visual artist focusing on analog and digital collage, painting, and mixed media. She has a background in commercial creative studies in interior design, 3D design, and sculpture. She received a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts - Intermedia from the University of the Arts Utrecht in 2004.

She lived for a month in Portugal in an artist residency program in 2015. While taking unexpected breaks, living in Brazil for eight months and staying for three months in New Zealand, she concentrated on herself with the goal of a fresh restart, refocusing on her art again.

Her art has been shown in international exhibits and is in private collections worldwide.


I am an explorer of imagination, where inspiration flows endlessly from within and the world around me. With a passion for the unique and the odd, I wander through flea markets, antique shops, and second-hand bookstores, but I discover and learn most in my beloved haven: nature.

All my senses guide me as the details, differences, synchronicities, metamorphosis, and parallelism add depth to my endless thoughts.

My visions often manifest in dreams, allowing me to communicate through surreal, symbolic, or abstract creations. While creating, I unveil hidden messages within my artwork, leaving interpretation to the viewer and inviting contemplation on the origins of unconscious concepts.

Using art as a transformative tool, I express and identify patterns and connections, shaping my life's purpose amidst this absurdist life.


Through my creative expressions, I find solace, belonging, and a profound connection to the world within and around me. 
In this creative sanctuary, where imagination knows no bounds, art becomes the voice of my soul, whispering stories of life, dreams, and the interconnections that bind us all.
