Our painters

#2 Claudina Fransina (Zusje)

born in 1973 in Curaçao

“I have two sons, one works at Serena’s Art Factory as well. I am the production manager and I am working at Serena’s Art Factory since 2011 but I started painting Chichi®s already in 2008.

I have my own inspiration. I feel relaxed and get carried away by my thoughts to somewhere else and then the inspiration comes to me. I think that THAT feeling is a requirement to be able to paint.

I have three places where I paint: sometimes in my room, at the dining table or at my mother’s house nicely set up under the tree – which is my favorite place, because my mother inspires me as well. We sit together and talk…sometimes at the same time.

It is not difficult for me to give the Chichi®s ‘away’ after I painted them …I am surrounded by them the whole day. But sometimes when I gave all my love into one of them, it becomes a bit harder to say goodbye.”
