Jalinka Gressmann is a visual artist currently 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.

In 2015, she participated in an artist residency program in Portugal and stayed there for a month. She spent three months in New Zealand and later moved to Brazil for eight months, all in pursuit of a fresh start and a renewed focus on her life/art. She has been fully dedicated to her artistic endeavors since 2020.

Her art has been shown internationally 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 hunting the unique and the odd, I love to wander through flea markets, antique shops, and second-hand bookstores. However, the realest findings I discovered were in the sanctuary of nature.

All my senses lead me as I try to decipher life like a puzzle. The details, differences, synchronicities, metamorphosis, and parallelism intrigue me the most and add depth to my endless thoughts.

​My visions often manifest in dreams, allowing me to communicate through surreal, symbolic, or abstract creations. 

Using art as a transformative and healing tool, I express and identify patterns and connections, shaping my life's purpose amidst this absurdist life with all the hidden layers.

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