Nelly van Hilfte


Teaches oil painting



Nelly van Hijfte has been painting all her life, inspired by the daily events. Through her eyes, reality becomes very special and often there’s a wise lesson and sometimes subtle criticism on the establishment in it. Always with a fine sense of humor. Nelly has been a professional artist since 1970, her canvases are and have always been colourful and powerful. She has her own, narrative style which sometimes tends towards surrealism and she paints her original subjects with a broad gesture. Her pseudonym is ‘Tim’ and that is always the simple, recognizable signature on all her works.
